After teasing us last year on Instagram Rachel Goswell has confirmed a new Slowdive album is being recorded.
In an interview with Stereogum Rachel has stated the album is due to be completed by the end of July.
Here’s what Rachel said:
It’s being recorded right now as we speak. So, yes it is. The guys have been in the studio for the last couple of days doing some drum and bass tracks.
We did quite a lot of recording last year. We spent a few weekends 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. But we recorded quite a lot of music last year, and Neil has spent all of this year, in fact, in the studio piecing bits and bolts together, doing more writing on what we recorded. And we’ve got a lot of songs, and I recorded vocals on a couple about three weeks ago.
I’m doing my vocals, as I did with Minor Victories, in my house because it’s convenient and it’s easy. Neil lives a couple of hours from me, and I’ve got my son to look after in between Minor Victories, and we’re going out to Austin with Slowdive on Thursday. Yep, it’s all in hand. We’re hoping to get it finished by the end of July, it’s all planned.
The interview was to promote the new Minor Victories album which is released on June 3rd.
Minor Victories have also shared a forth track from the album, you can watch the video for ‘Breaking My Light’ below.
