The Pains of Being Pure at Heart Cover Magnetic Fields on New Single

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, 'Jeremy'

It’s been more than a year since we’ve been treated to a new album from the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and there don’t seem to be any full-length releases from the Brooklyn indie-pop act on the horizon. But don’t fret, Pure at Heart fans: The band will release a new 7-inch single on Oct. 9 featuring covers of the Magnetic Fields tune ‘Jeremy’ on the A-side and East River Pipe’s ‘My Life is Wrong’ on the flip.

The Magnetic Fields cover has been posted online for your listening pleasure (check it out below), along with an endearing love letter to the band penned by TPOBPAH keyboardist-singer Peggy Wang. “The Magnetic Fields, for me, were part of an immature phase,” Wang writes in the post. “I know that has negative connotations, but in hindsight, I don’t think I could have fallen harder for any other band at any other time in my life.”

Meanwhile, the Pains are set to rock Musicfest NW in Portland, Ore., tonight ahead of a fall 2012 European tour that kicks off Oct. 14 in Glasgow, Scotland, and runs through a Nov. 12 gig in Helsinki, Finland. Check out the trek’s itinerary here.
