The Magnetic Fields are gearing up to release their 10th full-length album, Love at the Bottom of the Sea, on March 6. The 15-track project will be released by Merge Records, making it the first Magnetic Fields album on the Chapel Hill, N.C. label since their seminal 1999 three-disc 69 Love Songs. Not only that, but Love is apparently a return to the band's earlier blend of synthesizer and acoustic sounds, something they have moved away from as of late.
To coincide with the album's release, Stephin Merritt and company will hit the road in early March through the middle of April. The jaunt covers a fair amount of North America and even includes a stop in the U.K. for Jeff Mangum's ATP festival. View the tour dates below.
