On June 4th, Stephin Merritt’s Future Bible Heroes, the electronica-meets-disco counterpart to The Magnetic Fields, will return with their third album. Partygoing marks the band’s first new full-length since 2002’s Eternal Youth, and will be released through Merge Records.
As a first listen, the band has shared “Living, Loving, Partygoing”, a track that, like its name suggests, sounds like a bubbly, barrel of smiles. Listen in below.
In related news, Future Bible Heroes will issue a compilation that includes their previous two albums, the new one, and a number of EP tracks. The collection, Memories of Love, Eternal Youth, and Partygoing, is also due out June 4th.
