Belle & Sebastian are collaborating with fans on the composition of new lockdown song, “Protecting The Hive”.
Having assembled the lyrics from previous submissions, the band have now written a demo of the song and are asking for help to complete it.
A message on the Belle & Sebastian website reads: “Download the bones of the song, take it away, add a bass line, a trumpet, a voice, whatever you like and create your own version of ‘Protecting The Hive’.
“You may want to download the stems from this Soundcloud playlist [below] and import to Garageband if you have it but if you’re feeling lo-fi why not just download the full instrumental version and film yourself playing your instrument or singing over the top?”
Belle & Sebastian will share completed versions of the song in due course.
