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!"

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
