MAGNETIC FIELDS ANNOUNCE ALBUM...
MAGNETIC FIELDS ANNOUNCE ALBUM
American synth-pop outfit The Magnetic Fields have given word of their tenth long player, 'Love At The Bottom Of The Sea', which they'll release in the UK via Domino on 5 Mar.
Having cut synthesized sounds from their last three records, the band - comprising singer-songwriter Stephin Merrit and his long-time collaborative cast - opted to revisit the acoustic/synth blend that defined their 90s output. "Most of the synthesizers on the record didn't exist when we were last using synthesizers", says Merrit.
As for 2012 tour dates, the Fields' sole British billing so far will be at the Geoff Magnum curated ATP on 11 Mar.
