Listen: The Magnetic Fields -- "Andrew In Drag"

As we previously reported, 2012 is going to be an awesome year for The Magnetic Fields and the many Stephin Merritt fans out there. Their new album, Love At The Bottom Of The Sea, is coming out on March 6, and the band will support it with a full-on tour that leads them through the Jeff Mangum-curated All Tomorrow's Parties in the UK, SXSW in Austin, and our own Beacon Theatre in April (tickets).

And as proof of why you should get psyched for all of this, check out the first single off of Love, "Andrew In Drag," below the jump. We also re-posted all those tour dates below for your convenience and because we love you. Enjoy! (Cheers for the tip, Stereogum)
