school of language's new album "45" out today!

School of Language, aka Field Music’s David Brewis, released his brilliant new album “45” back in May and now the album it’s receiving its full physical released on CD and vinyl.

Written about the 45th US Presidency – the orange one’s dubious rise in politics, his capricious behavior while in office and the motley cast of characters he has surrounded himself with. It’s David channeling his inner politico through the funk of James Brown, The Meters, and Otis Redding.

“Funk-filled bundle of fun” ★ ★ ★ ★ MOJO

“Donald Trump gets a surreal Sunderland funk-punk comb-over” UNCUT

“The melodies are as glorious as the punchlines are funny” The Quietus

Buy “45” on CD, black vinyl and limited edition yellow vinyl, plus Rough Trade have an exclusive orange vinyl edition.

For every “45” order via the official store or bandcamp, we will be donating £1 split between the charities Planned Parenthood and Alliance for Choice.
