While not a full commitment to its titular concept, 50 Song Memoir is The Magnetic Fields' most charming and ambitious album in over a decade.

Earlier this year, Magnetic Fields announced that they’d be releasing a new 50-track album titled 50 Song Memoir. This isn’t that wild a stunt for Stephin Merritt and company, considering they released 69 Love Songs back in 1999. The new album is more personal for Merritt, however, since each song covers one year of his 50-year lifetime (as of his fiftieth birthday, when he began writing these songs)

The Magnetic Fields is a moniker for the mastermind behind the name: Stephen Merritt. Though TMF is Merritt’s most popular group, he has several other bands and collaborations, including The Gothic Archies whom he works with fiction writer, Daniel Handler (who has also provided accordion to Merritt’s work from time to time)
