More Info

10th anniversary vinyl reissue of ‘Field of Reeds’, the third studio album by British art rock band These New Puritans. Produced by Jack Barnett and Graham Sutton, the album features prominent contributions from over thirty-eight session musicians, including jazz singer Elisa Rodrigues, and finds the band "reinventing themselves as a neoclassical ensemble." The album is the band's first without keyboardist Sophie Sleigh-Johnson, who departed from the band in 2012.

‘Field of Reeds’ is a dark, honest and experimental orchestral work that reflects the band’s love of Bach, Britten and Stephen Sondheim. It marks a sonic deviation for the band and represents another uncompromising shift from a band without peer. Arranged with conductor André de Ridder, ‘Field of Reeds’ also features basso profundo Adrian Peacock, renowned British jazz trumpeter Henry Lowther, Dutch contemporary composer Michel van der Aa, Swedish soundtrack arranger Hans Ek and Portuguese jazz singer Elisa Rodrigues. Celebrating it’s 10th anniversary, this edition includes an etched side on double black vinyl.
