The stars of track and field are beautiful people.

You may be familiar with a sporting event by the name of the Olympic Games, which is taking place in Rio this year. To coincide with this, Belle and Sebastian have released a song “Olympic Village, 6am” in video-only format as the track and field events commence today.

Stuart Murdoch says:

“Belle and Sebastian dig the Olympics, love the Olympic ideal, love that the world gets together for a big ‘sports day’ once every four years. We can’t be part of it, though we’d like to be. So we recorded a piece of music with Rio in mind, specifically the Track and Field. Here it is: ‘Olympic Village, 6AM’.”

You can listen to the track and watch the video here.
