It's been more than two decades, but My Bloody Valentine have finally delivered the follow-up to 1991′s landmark album Loveless. The album is called MBV and consists of nine tracks, which are available for purchase through the band’s website in three formats: digital download, CD and limited-edition 180 gram vinyl (further release details at bottom).
Listen to the opening track, called "She Found Now," below:
Frontman Kevin Sheilds has explained the album as such: “I think with this record, people who like us will immediately connect with something. Based on the very, very few people who’ve heard stuff – some engineers, the band, and that’s about it – some people think it’s stranger than Loveless. I don’t. I feel like it really frees us up, and in the bigger picture it’s 100 per cent necessary.”
