A new My Bloody Valentine album might be on its way soon, singer and guitarist Kevin Shields revealed in an interview with Pitchfork.

While the shoegazers are reissuing a string of albums from their back catalog on May 7th, this would be the first new LP from the band in 21 years. Their last one was 1991's Loveless.

"I'm just finishing a record that I had started in the 90s," Shields said, and confirmed that the whole band is working on the album together.

"I've always said that we were going to make a record again," Shields said. "You never know, we might finish it really quickly, and it might be up in a few months! I tend to work really quickly, suddenly, and I might be willing to do that right now. We'll see!"

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
