Stephin Merritt, the master songsmith behind the Magnetic Fields’ 69 Love Songs, returns with the full band for a 2-week residency at MASS MoCA that culminates in the world premiere of a staged performance of the new Nonesuch Records album: 50 Song Memoir, an album celebrating Merritt’s first half-century on the planet. Merritt and band perform two distinct programs of the new songs — one for every year of his life — with a seven-person band playing 50 instruments from his eclectic collection. This remarkable show recounts his five decades on planet Earth, from his conception by hippies on a houseboat in St. Thomas to his current position as one of America’s greatest living songwriters.

Each performance will be a separate program. The entire album will take place over two nights: songs 1 – 25 on Friday, November 18, and songs 26 – 50 on Saturday, November 19.
The museum galleries will be open each night until 7pm.
