Looper’s Stuart David launches his latest book, ‘In The All-Night Cafe, A Memoir of Belle and Sebastian’.
Neatly tying in with the publication is the video for ‘Paper Boat’, a previously unreleased B&S song written around the same time as 1998’s ‘The Boy With the Arab Strap’.
The video is directed by longtime B&S collaborator and Looper member Karn David, and features footage of Stuart Murdoch and other founding member Isobel Campbell on holiday with then-manager Neil Robertson in Banchory in 1998. Watch that below via The Guardian.

The book comes out on April 16th via Little Brown in the UK, and on 1st May via Chicago Free Press in the US. There’s also ‘These Things‘, a 5 CD box set featuring the brand new album ‘Offgrid:Offline’.
