Belle and Sebastian have shared "I'll Be Your Pilot", the second single off an upcoming trilogy of EP's together titled How To Solve Our Human Problems. The three EP's will be released over a span of almost three months, with Part 1 due out December 8th of this year and Parts 2 and 3 following in early 2018, on January 19th and February 3rd, respectively.
"I'll Be Your Pilot" will feature on the second EP and follows the trilogy's first single, "We Were Beautiful", which will be released on Part 1. "We Were Beautiful" had been the first new music since the January 2015 studio LP, Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, which peaked at the ninth slot on Billboard's U.K. album charts.
The artwork for each new EP is composed of four portrait photos shot by Belle and Sebastian frontman Stuart Murdoch following an open casting for fans interested in being a part of the project. Murdoch posted on the band's website back in November of last year, "I'm looking for 50 or so volunteers to be models on these new records. I want to get some interesting faces: a representation of the population." In the end, 12 lucky fans will see their faces on the album artwork.
