Big news from FMHQ: We’ve accidentally made a new album – it’s called Making A New World and it’ll be out for your delectation in January 2020. And…err…it’s pretty much a concept album about the aftermath of the First World War. Wait! Come back! It’s not THAT kind of concept album! Honestly!
We’ve done songs about ultrasound and about shooting yourself for the sake of art and about gender reassignment surgery and about Becontree housing estate. We’ve even done a party tune about sanitary pads, called Only In A Man’s World and a funk stomper called Money is a Memory about an office worker in the German treasury making the last reparation payment 101 years after the end of the First World War. Check both out below or go HERE to listen on our Complete Field Music Spotify playlist
Making a New World can be pre-ordered on limited edition signed red transparent vinyl, CD, cassette and download from our shop along with the first ever FIELD MUSIC MUG (which you can dry with the Open Here tea towel). The usual discounted pre-order bundles are available; just look at these beauties:
But wait. Before you order there, we should tell you that we’ll be heading out around to play in, and in association with, some of the UK’s finest record stores. Just pre-order your copy of the album from the relevant shop and you can get in to see us play an intimate set, either instore, or at an outstore in a couple of cases. Here’s where we’ll be
