Belle & Sebastian guitarist Stevie Jackson has set a July 3rd release date for his debut solo album (I Can't Get No) Stevie Jackson.

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.

At the end of 2011, Stevie took a compact quartet on the road to showcase the songs comprising (I Can't Get No) Stevie Jackson, this line-up consisting of Bob Kildea (Belle & Sebastian), Stu Kidd and Marco Rea (The Wellgreen). The tour culminated in a sold-out homecoming at King Tut's in Glasgow, which a five-star Herald review described as "a masterclass in the art of pop craftsmanship" and "one of the gigs of the year".
