Field Music Line Up January Release For New Album 'Making A New World', Share First Single

Wednesday, 18 September 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Field Music have confirmed a new album.

‘Making A New World’ is a 19-track record about the after-effects of the First World War, and will arrive on January 10, 2020 via Memphis Industries. The band will support the follow up to 2018’s ’Open Here’ on tour in the UK in February 2020. 

The new LP will be the first since 2007’s ‘Tones Of Town’ to be recorded with the full band, as opposed to their recent material being mostly worked on by brothers Peter and David Brewis. To celebrate the news, Field Music have shares the LP’s first single. Only In A Man’s World is a funky, ridiculously catchy number that looks in depth at the advertisement of sanitary towels over the years. 

Vocalist David Brewis commented of the new single:

"I found myself researching the development of sanitary pads - not a statement I’ve ever imagined myself making - and was surprised at how little the advertising material has changed in a hundred years. It’s still, Hey Ladies! Let’s not mention it too loudly but here is the perfect product to keep you feeling normal WHILE THE DISGUSTING, DIRTY THING HAPPENS. And you realise that it’s a kind of madness that a monthly occurrence for billions of women - something absolutely necessary for the survival of humanity - is seen as shameful or dirty - and is taxed MORE than razor blades?!

"At every stage of making this song, I had to ask myself, am I allowed to do this? Is it okay to do this? And I cringed in the next room when I first showed it to my wife. But I think confronting my own embarrassment is a pretty fundamental part of what the song is about."

Check it out below.

Field Music will be performing ‘Making a New World’ in its entirety on tour next year, with each song accompanied by visuals created by the band’s Kevin Dosdale, as well as a bonus set of classics from the Field Music back catalogue. Tickets are on sale now.
