The Beths Share New Single, ‘Expert In A Dying Field’

The Beths have unleashed a new single, sharing the title track of their forthcoming album, Expert In A Dying Field. The new track comes one month after the record’s announcement, accompanied by lead single, ‘Silence Is Golden’.

With their new album scheduled for 16th September, The Beths explained recently they’d began working on their new album in guitarist Jonathan Pearce’s New Zealand studio, only for a months-long lockdown to halt progress. As a result, the group quickly pivoted, working on the record remotely, before reconvening while on the road, and ultimately finalising the recording during three days spent in a Los Angeles recording studio.

The Beths – ‘Expert In A Dying Field’

Sharing their record’s title track as their latest single, the song sees The Beths embracing a new sense of earnestness and vulnerability. As per an accompanying press release, lead songwriter and vocalist Elizabeth Stokes explains that the single introduces the listener to the overarching theme of the record.

“In the course of knowing a person you accumulate so much information: their favourite movies, how they take their tea, how to make them laugh, how that makes you feel,” she explains. “And when relationships between people change, or end, all that knowledge doesn’t just disappear.”

The Beths will release their new album on 16th September, with an Australian tour scheduled to begin the day prior in Melbourne.

Expert In A Dying Field is set for release 16th September.
