Stephin Merritt’s eighth album with The Magnetic Fields is being released on Monday (January 14) and www.uncut.co.uk has got a couple of clips for you to check out.
The anticipated follow up to 2004’s ‘i’ sees Merritt get more distorted, in a Jesus and Marychain way. Speaking about the album the frontman says: “I don’t know if anyone has done feedback piano before. The whole record has feedback acoustic piano. We put the amplifier directly up against the frame of the piano and turned it up enough to start feeding back.”
