Belle & Sebastian – “Paper Boat”

A ghost of pop past. “Paper Boat” has been circling the Internet since the Internet looked like this, but it’s never seen the light of day on a Belle & Sebastian album.

Enter Stuart David, leader of Looper—about to release a new album, box set and a book—and singer on “Paper Boat,” looking to drum up some publicity (we harbour no grudge for the attention grab—this was a long time coming).

The video was filmed by David’s wife and bandmate, Karn, “in the summer of 1998 when Neil Robertson (the then B&S manager) took Stuart Murdoch, Isobel Campbell, Stuart and Karn David, to Banchory, Aberdeenshire for a wee trip.”
