The Beths' third album, Expert in a Dying Field, is out in a couple months, and they've just shared its title track. It's one of the New Zealand band's prettier, more contemplative songs, where Liz Stokes sings "Love is learned over time ‘till you’re an expert in a dying field."

"I really do believe that love is learned over time,” says Stokes. “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.” You can watch the video below.

Expert in a Dying Field is out September 16 via Carpark Records, and you can preorder it on canary yellow vinyl and pick up more Beths vinyl in the BV shop.
