Belle and Sebastian Write About Love was initially revealed by Belle & Sebastian in early 2010 when they mentioned in the Q&A section of their official website that they had recently visited Los Angeles, California to record the tracks for the album. In a follow-up question, Stuart Murdoch confirmed that producer Tony Hoffer had returned for this album. The album's title was officially announced by Murdoch in a posting on Belle & Sebastian's website on 11 August 2010. On 16 August 2010, Murdoch announced the album cover, release dates, as well as a clip on YouTube of a planned Belle & Sebastian television show.
Two tracks from the album were played by the band during their 2010 tour. "I Didn't See It Coming" is a duet featuring Stuart Murdoch and Sarah Martin, while "I'm Not Living in the Real World" features Stevie Jackson primarily on vocals. On 16 August 2010, another track was announced, titled "I Want the World to Stop". Norah Jones is featured on the track "Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John".
On 3 September 2010, the names of five new songs set to feature on the album were shown during the credits of the promotional "Belle and Sebastian TV" programme. These are "Blue Eyes of a Millionaire", "Suicide Girl" and "I Can See Your Future" (all credited to the group), as well as "The Telephone Song" and "If I Can't Help Myself" (both credited to guitarist Stevie Jackson).
The title track, "Write About Love", was announced as the lead single from the album and was also released as a free, limited-time download from Belle & Sebastian's website. The single was released in the US iTunes Store on 7 September 2010, with a worldwide release on 25 September 2010.[
