Back in November, Kevin Shields was talking about the upcoming My Bloody Valentine album, saying it’d be more “all over the place”.
He was talking to Bob Boilen on NPR, where he talked a bit about some new remasters of ‘Loveless’ and ‘Isn’t Anything’, and spilled a few more details about the band’s plans for the record – as well as its lead-up. As reported by Stereogum, he said: “It’s more like I’m making an EP, but I don’t want to be constrained to four songs or a certain length or anything. It’s really an EP but it’s a sprawling EP. I’m going to do a couple of them before I do an album”.
He continued: “I think we’re going to play live in the summer and we’re just going to start introducing new ideas. So I just want to mix it up a bit and get away from my ‘every 20 years and make an album and then tour and disappear for five years’.” Don’t expect a full MBV record anytime soon then, but some “sprawling” EPs might well be on the cards in the near future.
