Field Music have shared new single "Do You Read Me?" from their forthcoming album Making A New World.
Field Music's Making A New World album will be their first since 2018's Open Here, and is inspired by the after-effects of the First World War, with songs about air traffic control, gender reassignment surgery, Tiananmen Square, and ultrasound.
The new album began when Field Music took on a project from the Imperial War Museum. The starting point for the record was a document from the museum collection, an image from 1919 on munitions by the US War Department, made using "sound ranging" - a technique that utilised an array of transducers to capture the vibrations of gunfire at the front.
