The deluxe version is highy limited and packaged like the deluxe Push Barman... sort of like a small book. There is a 6 song DVD of B&S performing at the BBC w/some commentary by the band as well. The DVD is exclusive to the deluxe version.Written almost entirely by frontman Stuart Murdoch, the new BELLE AND SEBASTIAN album, their sixth, marks a return to Matador Records and is a magnificently assured and diverse pop record. With nods to influences as diverse as Cornelius, Manfred Mann, and David Bowie, The Life Pursuit mingles the folky, be-sweatered pathos of their earliest work ("Dress Up In You") with joyfully satirical late-'60s sunshine pop ("White Collar Boy, "For The Price Of A Cup Of Tea") and the sophisticated early '80s-influenced work reminiscent of their prior album, 2003's Dear Catastrophe Waitress ("Sunshine)." BELLE AND SEBASTIAN will be doing two full tours of North America on this record, the first with the New Pornographers.
