FIELD MUSIC - announce new album 'Commontime'

Following the recent release of Commontime, perhaps Field Music’s most celebrated album thus far and definitely the first to crack the top 40, the Sunderland duo have announced their biggest headline tour to date, including a show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

Field Music live

To celebrate, they've shared Ewan Pearson's remix of "Disappointed." It's an extended six-minute version of Field Music's latest single, the original of which is currently gracing the BBC 6 Music A-list. Listen below.

No one else really does what Field Music do: the interweaving vocals, the rhythmic gear changes, the slightly off-chords, but with the sensibility that keeps them within touching distance of pop music. And on Commntime, Field Music show off their unashamed love of choruses in a way they’ve only hinted at before.

Written and recorded in spontaneous bursts over six months in their Wearside studio, Commontime is built around Peter and David Brewis playing and singing together again, but also features a wider array of players, including original Field Music keyboardist Andrew Moore, Peter's wife Jennie Brewis and new member of the live band Liz Corney on vocals, plus a panoply of other players.

The Field Music live band expands to a five piece live with Peter and David alternating between lead vocals, drums, keyboards and guitar, ably abetted by Kev Dosdale (guitar, synths), Andrew Lowther (bass) and Liz Corney (keys and vocals).
