Field Music Share New Single Plus Upcoming Album News and Tour Dates Following in the steps of BBC 6 Music A-listed The Noisy Days Are Over, Mercury Prize nominated duo Field Music have shared new single Disappointed on Soundcloud.

A lush, deeply textured preview for their forthcoming album Commontime, due for release on 5th Febraury through Memphis Industries, the track is the nearest the Brewis brothers have come to an all-out pop song.

David Brewis, who sings lead vocal on the song, ‘We were consciously embracing the simplicity and directness of the pop music we love, where most of the song is in the chorus and the singing is always right at the front. I’m imagining a couple trying to get together and not quite managing it because they’re a bit older and they’ve already built up complete lives as individuals. Their expectations of what love should be have become too byzantine to let themselves take a risk’.

The follow up to last year’s limited release soundtrack project Music For Drifters, album is the successor to 2012s Mercury Prize nominated set Plumb.

Set to hit the road as a five-piece band from next week onwards, the group have a UK-wide tour planned, see dates below.
