Belle and Sebastian Write About Love, also known simply as Write About Love, is the eighth album by Belle & Sebastian, released on October 11, 2010. Stylistically, it was partial return to the band's moodier roots, while keeping the high production value from their previous two albums. It also featured the return of the band's signature orchestral sections, which were not included in the previous album.
It was well received, and is tied with The Life Pursuit as the band's highest charting album. Inspired by Stuart Murdoch's side project, God Help the Girl, the album features more female vocals, including tracks featuring Norah Jones and Carey Mulligan.
