Field Music - Brown Paper 1creditAndyMartin

Commontime is the new record from Field Music, the first album from Sunderland siblings Peter and David Brewis since 2012’s Plumb.

Written and recorded in spontaneous bursts over six months in their Wearside studio, Commontime is built around the brothers playing, writing and singing together again after four years of solo works, collaborations and soundtracks. “As much fun as we might have had on our own or collaborating, we missed just spending time in the studio, the two of us, trying things out together.” explains David. However, the album also features a wider array of players, including original Field Music keyboardist Andrew Moore, Peter’s wife Jennie Brewis and new member of the live band Liz Corney on vocals, along with a panoply of strings and brass.
