i is the seventh studio album from the New York-based indie pop band, The Magnetic Fields. The songs of the album are connected by their starting with the letter "i", and are also arranged in alphabetical order.
The album ditches many of Stephin Merritt's past synthpop and electropop influences, largely being led by guitars and strings. It was followed in 2008, by Distortion, and in 2010, by Realism, which were both also free of synthesizer instrumentation, forming the so-called "no-synth trilogy".
The cover art, designed by Evan Gaffney, is based on Gravity in Four Directions by Fred Tomaselli.
