The Magnetic Fields have announced plans to release their new album entitled ‘Love at the Bottom of the Sea’ this March 2012 on Domino Records in Europe. The band’s tenth full-length album is also their first release of new material with Merge Records in the US since 1999′s highly acclaimed ‘69 Love Songs’. The Magnetic Fields will celebrate their new album with tours through North America and Europe.

After putting out their “synth-free trilogy,” The Magnetic Fields are returning to their signature mix of synth and acoustic sounds. Stephin Merritt notes about the new album that “instead of using a synthesizer as a melodic instrument, much of the time I used it as a compositional destructive mechanism, something eating away at the apparent order of my perfectionist arrangements. I was very happy to be using synthesizers in ways that I had not done before. Most of the synthesizers on the record didn’t exist when we were last using synthesizers.”

The songs – none over three minutes long – were recorded with Stephin Merritt’s usual cast of collaborators: Claudia Gonson, Sam Davol, John Woo, Shirley Simms, Johny Blood and Daniel Handler.
