Published Feb 26, 2009When last we wrote about the Field, we said a new record was "expected." Well, you can now replace that with "definitely coming."
Stockholm's beat-driven minimalist Axel Willner has confirmed his Field follow-up to 2007's From Here We Go Sublime will hit North America on May 26 courtesy of Kompakt.
Willner has titled the new record Yesterday & Today and it will be "more organic than its predecessor, with some surprises," says Kompakt. Apparently one of those surprises is Battles drummer John Stanier, who, as previously reported, contributed some beats to the record, and another is Jörg Burger, who handled the mixing. Other than that, though, Kompakt hasn't given us many more details.
An extensive North American tour is expected to come in support of Yesterday & Today but no dates have yet been announced, so stay tuned.
