    Belle and Sebastian have released “Sister Buddha,” a track off their soundtrack to the forthcoming indie film Days of the Bagnold Summer. It was released with a light-hearted video, shot in black-and-white, featuring two teenagers dancing as the band perform the upbeat song.

    “Sister Buddha” is the opening track of the soundtrack album to Days of the Bagnold Summer. The indie comedy is based on a graphic novel of the same name and is The Inbetweeners star Simon Bird’s directorial debut starring Rob Brydon, Alice Lowe and Monica Dolan. It is set to be released in 2020.

    The Glaswegian band will craft the film’s original soundtrack, which features 11 new songs as well as reworks of Belle and Sebastian classics “Get Me Away from Here I’m Dying” and “I Know Where the Summer Goes.”

    “I read [the graphic novel Days of the Bagnold Summer] on a Friday, and by Monday I pretty much had all my ideas lined up,” vocalist Stuart Murdoch explained in a statement. “We all have fantasies about those great movies of the ’60s and the ’70s. If you’re going to get involved with a project like this, you want to do it right.”

    The soundtrack to Days of the Bagnold Summer will be released via Matador Records on September 13. Watch the music video for “Sister Buddha” below:
