New Belle and Sebastian leaked via internet

The new album of Belle and Sebastian, "Life Persuit", will be released at February 7. But the internet hackers, as usual (see Franz Ferdinand, The Strokes etc), succeeded to steal a new song from the album, called "Another Sunny Day".

Belle and Sebastian


The new song sounds nice, with great vocals and surprisingly wild guitars. The impatience of the fans is huge, but they have to wait except other tracks leak again.. It is the third in a few months that unreleased songs leak.

What will happen in the future?
