Belle & Sebastian are set to start work on their first album since 2006’s ‘The Life Pursuit’.

Led by Stuart Murdoch, The Glasgow indie band, who have been on ‘semi-hiatus’ in recent years, sent a message to fans on their email list confirming that they have begun working on new material and are set to start recording in Los Angeles soon.

“We’ve been in the studio these last few weeks writing some new tracks and shortly we will say cheerio to Glasgow for a while when we set off to LA to record our next album,” the email message explained.

A series of festival bookings for 2010 have also been confirmed for the band, via their website, Belleandsebastian.com. They will play Finland’s Ruisrock Festival (July 11), Norway’s Slottsfjell Festival (July 15) and Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival (August 1).

UK appearances are also expected.
