Listen: Belle and Sebastian – ‘What Happened to you, Son?’

Ahead of the launch of their coast-to-coast North American tour this month, Belle and Sebastian have released a brand new song, ‘What Happened to You, Son?’

Stuart Murdoch says on the song “‘What Happened to You Son’ got pulled rather randomly from the last LP because the LP felt one track too long. Out it came. The song is about my youth, and the funny hole I fell into in my late teens. I was failing at my university course, failing in almost everything I tried around then. I was obsessed with the music of the time, I used to hang so much on the lyrics and message and feeling of certain bands of the 80s era – it probably wasn’t healthy. The song finishes hopefully, however. There’s always a way forward, always a light to guide you if you look closely, if you give up part of yourself, if you let yourself flow and change.”
