It’s been two years since Belle and Sebastian released new music, but now the drought is over. Today, the Scottish indie pop veterans have returned with a new single, “We Were Beautiful.”

The uptempo track is the first new material to surface from the group since 2015’s Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance. It was recorded in Belle and Sebastian’s hometown of Glasgow and produced by the band and Brian McNeill. Frontman Stuart Murdoch’s vocals float over warm brass and soaring synths combine with skittery percussion and a pulsating bassline.

Hear “We Were Beautiful” below.
