"Star Roving" is Slowdive's first new song in over two decades and it seems to be just the taste of what's to come. Their last album was 1995's Pygmalion. The band has said the song is “part of a bunch of new tracks we've been working on” since 2014. "It feels as fun, and as relevant playing together now as it did when we first started," frontman Neil Halstead explained in a press release.
Read the whole statement:
“When the band decided to get back together in 2014, we really wanted to make new music. It's taken us a whole load of shows and a few false starts to get to that point, but it's with pride and a certain trepidation we unleash ‘Star Roving.’ It’s part of a bunch of new tracks we've been working on and it feels as fun, and as relevant playing together now as it did when we first started. We hope folks enjoy it.”
