Field Music crank up the funkometer on new jam "Share A Pillow"

25 January 2018, 11:21 | Written by Laurence Day

Ahead of their sixth studio LP Open Here, Field Music have unveiled superbly squelchy new song "Share A Pillow".

"This one was inspired by my son creeping into my bed during the night, and him and I having to have a talk about why he needs to be in his own bed." the group's Peter Brewis tells Noisey. "I'd say 'there's no room / you have your own bed'. And, he'd often reply with, 'it's fine dad, we can share a pillow', 'I'm lonely in my room', 'it's too late to go back to bed'. I thought it could come across in a few different ways so I just wrote some of this stuff down without being specific with what it was about... and set then it to the 'Uptown Girl' drum beat!"

"Share A Pillow" links up with "Time In Joy" and lead single "Count It Up" in teasing the band's follow up to 2016 LP Commontime.

Field Music are set to tour the UK from February, with three shows at Newcastle's Northern Stage kicking off proceedings. The tour takes them across the UK, with a show at London's Barbican with the Open Here Orchestra rounding off the tour in May. Find out all the details.

Open Here is out 2 February via Memphis Industries.
