“Lucky” will get Lucky with B&S
More B&S: Matador have announced a competition for which they are making the (quite possibly justifiable) claim that it is the coolest thing ever.
Inside every copy of Belle and Sebastian’s new album Write About Love is a unique code which you will enter here and then write 300 words about love, in any sense of the word. Why you love. Who you love. What you love. Where you love. Anything. Just write about love.
Then Belle and Sebastian will pick a winner (henceforth referred to as “Lucky”) and Stuart Murdoch will fly out to Lucky’s hometown, hang out with Lucky for an afternoon, and write and record a song about Lucky which will then be released on an exclusive Belle and Sebastian 7″ later in 2011.
Yep. Coolest thing ever.
I met Stuart once. I was drunk and I told him I loved him. He said: “Of course you don’t”. But he said it in such a lovely way, I just ended up loving him even more.
