Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval to return with new album this September
Who lived through the ’90s without listening to Mazzy Star’s shimmery, narcotic dream-rock lullaby “Fade Into You” a few thousand times? Not me, Music Mixers.
If you’ve been waiting for another full-length frontwoman Hope Sandoval in the long years since her 2001 album with the Warm Inventions, Bavarian Fruit Bread, today is your happy — or at least, happy in an appropriately brooding, restrained Mazzy-ish way — day! This September, Nettwerk will release Through the Devil Softly, written by Sandoval with her bandmate, My Bloody Valentine drummer Colm O Ciosoig.
Listen to the swooning, slow-burn “Blanchard” below, for a sneak preview, and tell us if you’re looking forward to Sandoval’s return:
