Belle & Sebastian Confirm Details Of Their New Single
Added on 15th January 2004

‘I’m A Cuckoo’ will be released on February 16th in the UK and Europe through Rough Trade Records. It will be available on 3 formats:
– a 7″ single featuring ‘I’m A Cuckoo’ and ‘(I Believe In) Travellin’ Light’;
– an enhanced CD single featuring ‘I’m A Cuckoo’, ‘Stop, Look and Listen’, ‘I’m A Cuckoo (by The Avalanches)’ and ‘(I Believe In) Travellin’ Light’ as well as the video for “I’m A Cuckoo”;
– and a DVD single featuring the ‘I’m A Cuckoo’ video, a weird photo gallery/video hybrid for ‘Stop, Look and Listen’ plus audio of ‘I’m A Cuckoo (by The Avalanches)’ and ‘(I Believe In) Travellin’ Light’.

The video for ‘I’m A Cuckoo’ stars Stuart as a budding athlete torn between the demands of his coach (played by Alan Wells, winner of the olympic gold medal over 100m in 1978), band politics and the women in his life. It was directed by Blair Young – who edited the “Fans Only” DVD – and Stuart Murdoch.
“I’m A Cuckoo (by The Avalanches)” is B&S’ first ever remix, which uses so little of the original that the band didn’t think the title remix did it justice so they’ve called it their version.

“I’m A Cuckoo” will be released by Rough Trade America on enhanced CD single and (imported UK) 7″ on February 24th. The enhanced CD single will also be released in Japan by Labels JP on February 18th and in Australia by Spunk Records on March 1st.
