The reunion record from Slowdive, self-titled, is now up for pre-order at Dead Oceans. A limited edition of silver vinyl is available in bundles (seen above), while standard black and cassettes are also options. The last record from the band came out in 1995.
“It’s poppier than I thought it was going to be,” notes Halstead, who was the primary architect of 1995‘s previous full-length transmission Pygmalion. This time out the group dynamic was all-important. “When you’re in a band and you do three records, there’s a continuous flow and a development. For us, that flow re-started with us playing live again and that has continued into the record.”
The album is being released on May 5. You can stream new song, “Sugar for the Pill,” below.
