REALISM, folks! The Magnetic Fields' new album is coming out January 26, 2010, and it looks like this:
And, it's track listing is as follows:
You Must Be Out of Your Mind
We Are Having a Hootenanny
I Don't Know What to Say
The Dolls' Tea Party
Everything Is One Big Christmas Tree
Walk a Lonely Road
Always Already Gone
Seduced and Abandoned
The Dada Polka
From a Sinking Boat
And, the official SM website has this to say about it:
The Magnetic Fields' new album, "Realism," will be released on Nonesuch Records on January 26, 2010. Swerving from the unrelenting feedback pop of "Distortion," this record explores the various genres under the umbrella of folk. Stephin says, "I thought of the two records as a pair, and I initially wanted them to be called 'True' and 'False.' But I couldn't decide which I wanted to be called 'True' and which I wanted to be called 'False.'"
All of this is said before announcing that the band will tour in 2010, and folks, if that's not a reason to revive this community, I really don't know what may be.
