TMF Return to Merge!

Ohmygodohmygodohmygod!! The Magnetic Fields will be releasing their new album in early 2012 via Merge Records! Details other than those are scant, but in the mean time, we have Obscurities to anxiously await.

I'm wondering what has become of Nonesuch Records, for sure. But, who cares right now? New Magnetic Fields in as little as six months!


  1. I'm thinkin' Nonesuch was probably just for the no-synth trilogy.

  2. Holy shit - this is amazing, amazing news!

    I was disappointed that the Fields went over to Nonesuch, I felt like they were betraying Merge, who fostered them through some of their best work, who allowed Stephin's creativity to run rampant as he liked, just to go over to Nonesuch, and for what? To limit the allowed creativity and independence of Stephin?

    Hehe, that was a lot. But I'm really fucking happy to hear this. Thanks so much for maintaining such a great blog!
