Slowdive release first song in 22 years, “Star Roving”
Last summer, shoegaze greats Slowdive revealed that they finished recording their new album and that it'd be due out in 2017, making it their first album in 22 years. Album details are still TBA, but a new single is finally here. It's called "Star Roving" and it sounds like not a day has passed since Slowdive's prime era. Says singer/guitarist Neil Halstead:
When the band decided to get back together in 2014, we really wanted to make new music. It's taken us a whole load of shows and a few false starts to get to that point, but it's with pride and a certain trepidation we unleash ‘Star Roving.’ It’s part of a bunch of new tracks we've been working on and it feels as fun, and as relevant playing together now as it did when we first started. We hope folks enjoy it.
