The Magnetic Fields’ Stephin Merritt has a history of being a bit unresponsive and surly during interviews, but there’s no denying the guy’s chops as a songwriter. Recently sitting down with CBS News Merritt used a ukulele to play a solo rendition of “Andrew In Drag” off the band’s most recent album Love At the Bottom of the Sea. According to Merritt, the song was the result of a night of heavy drinking, with him waking up to a notepad of lyrics and melody that somehow managed to survive the blackout.
