Not too long ago we spread word that Stevie Jackson of Belle and Sebastian was releasing his debut solo album titled, (I Can’t Get No) Stevie Jackson.
Click on the media player above and you’ll be treated to “Where Have All The Good Girls Gone,” which is on his album that comes out on July 3rd.
Jackson has been working on the record for a number of years around his touring and recording commitments, not only with B&S, but notably The Vaselines, Russian Red, Bill Wells Trio and God Help The Girl.
(I Can’t Get No) Stevie Jackson features twelve songs, which have been written and recorded with a range of collaborators in Glasgow and Vancouver in the period since Belle & Sebastian’s 2006 album The Life Pursuit. In addition to featuring various members of Belle & Sebastian, the tracks recorded in Glasgow include contributions from long-term associates and collaborators of Stevie’s including Roy Moller and Gary Thom (The Company), Bill Wells, Alex Neilson (Trembling Bells) and Katrina Mitchell (The Pastels), while the Vancouver recordings feature the New Pornographers’ rhythm section, Kurt Dahle and John Collins.
What do you think about the song? Potential to be on his own, or should he stick to Belle and Sebastian?
