Belle and Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch is finally utilizing his 2009 album, God Help the Girl, in the way he originally intended. According to Pitchfork, he always wanted it to be the driving force in a musical film, and now thanks to a few things including a Kickstarter campaign, he’s making that dream a reality.
The film will be released in North America in theaters on September 5, with its soundtrack debuting September 2. In addition to the original music, the soundtrack will feature a few new songs by Murdoch and sung by the cast.
