Belle & Sebastian are all set to release the first of three new EPs. How To Solve Our Human Problems arrives tomorrow (December 8) and will set the tone for the next two drops. Those come on January 19 and February 16 via Matador Records.
Ahead of the release, fans were given “We Were Beautiful” and “I’ll Be Your Pilot.” Today (December 7), we were given the music video for the later.

He let them do whatever they wanted to do, and it was interesting because sometimes they would do very little, and sometimes you would get an emotional response.
