Belle and Sebastian have announced a new double live album.

'What To Look For In Summer' will arrive via Matador Records on December 11, and features tracks recorded during the Scottish band's 2019 world tour, including last summer’s Boaty Weekender cruise.

“We'd been badgered by our fan base to put out recordings of the shows, " frontman Stuart Murdoch said teasingly. “It was something to focus on,” added guitarist and singer Stevie Jackson. “That was very, very nice.”

Head below to check out the videos for the live version of their classic song The Boy With The Arab Strap and early cut My Wandering Days Are Over, alongside the record's artwork and detailed tracklist.

Earlier in 2020, the band released the two-part collaborative project 'Protecting The Hive', while their last studio album was 2019's 'Days of the Bagnold Summer', which doubled as the soundtrack for this year's film of the same name by director Simon Bird.
