As a fan of both The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and The Magnetic Fields, it’s my lucky day. The Pains will release a new 7” single in October via Slumberland Records featuring a cover of Jeremy by The Magnetic Fields. The record also features East River Pipe’s My Life is Wrong as the B-side. The song has a special connection with Peggy Wang (keyboards/vocals); ‘The Magnetic Fields might have been the last band I ever unconditionally loved without ever stopping to try to understand why – just the kind of love story I hoped to one day live through.’ The single is now streaming over at the fans’ Tumblr.
