Download: Carey Mulligan Sings With Belle and Sebastian

Carey Mulligan – our favorite Oscar-nominated Doctor Who alum – has lent her vocals to the latest Belle & Sebastian single. The tune’s called “Write About Love,” and in typical B&S fashion, it’s charming ’60s-influenced pop. And it’s available as a free download. Who knew that lovely Sally Sparrow from Doctor Who’s “Blink” could also sing like one? (Which is great – Mulligan has been a longtime candidate to play Eliza Doolittle in a film adaptation of the musical My Fair Lady.)

Mulligan was Oscar-nominated and won a BAFTA for An Education this past winter, and the busy actress has Never Let Me Go and Wall Street 2 coming up this month.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
