Field Music have shared a new song, ‘Time In Joy’

It's about "fun in the face of hardship," says Peter Brewis.
Field Music are going to release their new album early next year, and they’ve just dropped a new song from it, ‘Time In Joy’.

Peter Brewis comments: “People have a sort of romanticized idea of feelings that are painful or dark, that they are more meaningful, but when I’ve been through dark times, I find that there isn’t a lot of romance in that, that I function better and get more meaning out of positive experiences.

“With some things that have been happening personally to us recently, and obviously the things happening in the wider world, there’s a kind of defiance in playfulness, and that’s what we were trying to capture with this song.

“It isn’t escapism, but it’s an attempt to confront those things with a deliberate sense of fun. Fun in the face of hardship. We set out to have a good time making this record, in spite of everything.”

‘Open Here’ is due on 2nd February via Memphis Industries, followed by a handful of special shows with the Open Here Orchestra at London’s Barbican and Newcastle’s Northern Stage.
