Our Man in the Field Finds ‘Gold On The Horizon’

Our Man In The Field, the musical pseudonym of British singer/songwriter Alex Ellis, has released “How Long,” the newest track from his upcoming album Gold on the Horizon, out November 3, 2023. Gold on the Horizon is the sophomore album from OMITF and finds Ellis “musing on life and all its nuances.” Our Man in the Field is currently touring the UK, and additional dates are in the works.

Ellis shares about the lack of “civility” in modern life:

I’m more or less a glass half full kind of person so I usually feel content that however bad things get or however far away from my preferred position society moves, it’ll pass and at some point, we’ll move back towards the middle and it’ll get easier.  It seems like we’ve been waiting a long time for that now. 

Produced and mixed by Tucker Martine (Modest Mouse, Rosanne Cash, case/lang/veirs), Gold on the Horizon was recorded in December 2021 at Flora Recording and Playback in Portland, OR. What informs Ellis and Gold on the Horizon is the ability to “wait for something magical to happen.”
