"Beyond That of Courtesy" makes reference to the Inter-Allied Women’s Conference organised by the French Women’s Suffrage Societies after the First World War, and arrives after earlier singles "Money Is A Memory" and "Only In A Man's World".

Field Music's Making A New World album will be their first since last year'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.

"Beyond That of Courtesy" is out now. Making A New World will be released via Memphis Industries on 10 January 2020, and is available to pre-order now. Field Music play London's EartH on 29 February 2020. Find out more.
