It's been two years since Columbus band Fields & Planes released new music, and today the group dropped a new single, "Ana Maria," featuring Paul Valdiviez on vocals and acoustic guitar, along with a gorgeous string section.

"Ana Maria" is a sweetly sung and crisply recorded chamber-folk track, with wistful lyrics that seem entirely appropriate these days: "And it may be awhile/Till the day I see you smile/I hope you keep those trinkets/To remind you of the time we had in Ohio."

"Ana Maria" is available on streaming services and YouTube:
