The as-yet-untitled LP is the band’s first since 1995’s Pygmalion.

After reuniting in 2014 with a series of live shows, Slowdive are currently back in the studio recording a new album and hope to have it finished by July, the band’s Rachel Goswell revealed yesterday in an interview with Stereogum.

“The guys have been in the studio for the last couple of days doing some drum and bass tracks,” she said. “We did quite a lot of recording last year. It’s quite difficult because we’ve all got children and we all live in different parts of the country. As you get older, it is quite a challenge.”

While any further details about the LP have yet to be shared, Goswell declared that the band have “a lot of songs,” and that she recorded vocals for some of those tracks a few weeks ago.

Slowdive, who formed in Reading in 1989, celebrated their 25th anniversary last year with the release of a live EP, Avalyn, but have not released anything new since their landmark 1995 album Pygmalion.

The indie luminaries made a FACT mix for us in 2014, which featured artists and tracks that have influenced them as a band.
