In order to promote the digital release of their new Stills EP, God Help The Girl is giving away the title track. No direct link to the MP3, but if you follow the “Download” link below and give them your email address and zip code, you’lll be given the option to download the song in variety of formats including 320kbps MP3, FLAC, and Apple Lossless.
Belle and Sebastian‘s Stuart Murdoch has been working on this project for years, and the album was excellent. Judging by this freebie, the EP will be on par. And I’ll be damned if Murdoch does not have the best taste in cover stars—where does he find those girls?
“This is not the usual five duffers that didn’t make the album,” says Stuart. “It just happens to be the tracks that Catherine, Celia and Alex sang that were less relevant to the film project, so I wanted to put them on a separate release and let the LP follow the curve of the proposed film.”
In related news, a new Belle and Sebastian record will “most likely” be released “during 2010,” and filming on the God Help The Girl movie “should get properly underway in 2011.”
