Britain’s Field Music (anchored by brothers Peter and David Brewis) are releasing their new album, Commontime, on February 5, 2016 via Memphis Industries. Previously the band shared the album’s first single, “The Noisy Days Are Over.” Now the song has a video, which you can watch below.

“The Noisy Days Are Over” is fun sax-filled song about two friends growing up and leaving behind their hard drinking days to “get to bed like everyone else.” The video plays off this theme and features a man (played by artist/musician/DJ Graeme “Grassi” Hopper) wandering around the band’s hometown of Sunderland, looking to get into trouble, but constantly being confronted by Field Music (on screens and in person) reminding him that it might be time to settle down.

Andy Martin directed the video. Field Music’s Peter Brewis, who came up with the video’s concept, had this to say about the clip in a press release: “Andy and Graeme pulled off something visually stunning, as well as being very funny. It’s a perfect commentary to the song and it works as a snapshot of our little cultural sphere in Sunderland in the same way the [Field Music] video for ‘You’re Not Supposed To’ did nine years ago.”

Prince recently tweeted out a link to the audio of “The Noisy Days Are Over,” which has alas since been taken down.

Commontime also features, as a press release states, “original Field Music keyboardist Andrew Moore, Peter’s wife Jennie Brewis and new member of the live band Liz Corney on vocals, plus a panoply of other players.”
