Demisexual Lovelace, the new album from Brooklyn based artist Fielded, is an intimate exploration of mortality, sex, womanhood and intersectionality. It’s a project that questions the nature of our relationships, of love and shame, of the shackles we place on ourselves and each other. This is Fielded’s first full-length since 2018 and it is significantly more autobiographical than her past work, inspired by healing modalities such as the group work of recovery, a deepening relationship to herbalism and meditative labor with the earth.
This album is a turning point for Fielded, leaving pop behind for a more introspective sound where her voice can truly be experienced in its fullest, most sincere range and timbre. Although she is a producer, Fielded wanted to focus more on the songwriting, so she brought in David Lackner of Galtta Tapes and Blue Jazz TV to co-produce. She also took a step back from drum production on a few songs and asked Willie Green, who also mixed and mastered the album, to step in and make the beats. Billy Woods appears on “Justus”, a song about the bloom of love and the giddy moment before you reveal your true feelings to someone for the first time. Elucid shows out on “Grasses Sweet” a song from the perspective of Mother Earth from the time of the Columbian Exchange until the present.
