THE EAGERLY ANTICIPATED FOLLOW-UP TO FUTURE ISLANDS’CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED AND SILVER SELLING ALBUM, SINGLESFuture Islands are Samuel T. Herring (vocals, lyrics), William Cashion (bass,
guitars) and Gerrit Whelmers (keyboards, programming).
Recorded in Los Angeles with GRAMMY award-winning producer John Congleton atthe legendary Sunset Sound (where everyone from The Beach Boys to Prince havelaid down masterpieces), The Far Field’s twelve chest-pounding love songs and odes to the road brilliantly express the central themes the band have beenexploring for the last decade: that there is power in emotional vulnerability, thatone can find a way to laugh and cry in the same breath – and be stronger for it.
The Far Field features string and horn arrangements by Patrick McMinn and istheir first record to feature live drums by Michael Lowry, who joined the band prior to their sensational performance of ‘Seasons (Waiting On You)’ on David
Letterman’s late night TV show and has remained a fixture since. Blondie’s Debbie Harry also makes a guest appearance, in a duet with Herring on penultimate track ‘Shadows’.
