Belle and Sebastian have signed a new publishing deal with Polar Patrol Publishing.
The publishing company was set-up in 2010 by Snow Patrol’s Jonny Quinn, Gary Lightbody and Nathan Connolly with the aim of being an artist-led, pro-active company for musicians.
“We couldn’t be happier about signing Belle and Sebastian. We have known them for nearly twenty years as they were signed to Jeepster Records the same time we were in the mid-nineties. They are an extraordinary band, who not only write great, enduring songs, but have over many years woven magic and wonder into tales of ordinary life. And in the time of Twitter when it seems every detail of every life is up there for all to see they somehow retain an element of rare and alluring mystery,” said Gary Lightbody of Snow Patrol.
Belle and Sebastian are currently finishing off their ninth studio album which is for release later this year.
