Kevin Shields says My Bloody Valentine will enter the studio this fall
My Bloody Valentine singer Kevin Shields has new music on his mind. Early last year, My Bloody Valentine reemerged with a new studio album, “m b v,” which marked the band’s first collection of new materials in 20-plus years. Now, Shields is already ready to get started on another set— this time an EP.
According to NME, Shields spoke about the new tunes after a show by the Proper Ornaments in London, stating he was “working on some new songs at the moment” that will eventually become an EP.
Shields added, “We plan on going into the studio October/November time.” If this timeline stands, it means fans will enjoy a strangely quick follow-up for My Bloody Valentine.
My Bloody Valentine are known for releasing EPs. The group unleashed a handful of EPs in the mid-‘80s and early-‘90s. “m b v” arrived in February of 2013 and marked the band’s first new material since its second studio album, 1991’s “Loveless.”
Shields previously hinted at a new EP on the way in an interview with Pitchfork last August, saying, “The next step is to make an EP of all-new material.” He added that he’s also planning “to re-master ‘Loveless’ and ‘Isn’t Anything’ and all the EPs in analog to make pure analog cuts, which has never happened before.”
