Now in his late 60s, Fields is ushering in the most fruitful period of his career. His music has been chopped up and sampled by hip-hop artists as diverse as J Cole and Travis Scott.
It Rains Love is music of endless love, of endless hurt, of reverberating kindness and wisdom, of a lifetime of pain alchemised into kindness.
He ended up putting more of himself into his music than he used to dare. As he puts it on the titles of the new album's last two songs, ‘God Is Real’ and ‘Love Is the Answer’.
Taken together, they could be everything Fields has been trying to say ever since his recording career began. It is nothing less than his take on the human condition.
