Field Music (Measure) is the third full-length studio album by indie rock band Field Music. It was released on 15 February 2010. Officially, the album's name is the same as their debut album; the name "Measure", other than being the name of one of the songs, does not appear anywhere on the album's artwork. However, both fans and the band have taken to calling it Measure to distinguish the two. Measure is a double album and is split into two discs. The first disc primarily contains more traditionally-structured songs, including both of the album's singles ("Them That Do Nothing" and "Let's Write A Book"), whilst the second disc is dominated by more experimental tracks including found-sound pieces ("See You Later" and "Louis").
