The Beths shared a new single, “Expert In A Dying Field.” The song is the title track to the New Zealand quartet’s upcoming album, due out on September 16 via Carpark Records.

The Beths detailed Expert In a Dying Field in June and previewed the record with “Silence Is Golden.” The band now follows with the eponymous second single.

The concept behind Expert In A Dying Field and its title track sees frontwoman Elizabeth Stokes reflecting on a question: “what do you do with how intimately versed you’ve become in a person, once they’re gone from your life?” As per press materials for the album.

“I really do believe that love is learned over time,” Stokes said referencing a lyric from “Expert In A Dying Field.” “In the course of knowing a person you accumulate so much information: their favorite movies, how they take their tea, how to make them laugh, how that makes you feel. And when relationships between people change, or end, all that knowledge doesn’t just disappear. The phrase ‘Expert in a Dying Field’ had been floating around my head for a few years, I was glad to finally capture it when writing this tune.”

“Expert In A Dying Field” arrived with an accompanying music video directed by Frances Carter. Watch it below:
