Mazzy Star return for first release in 15 years

The dream-pop band are putting out a brand new double sided single later this month

Mazzy Star return for first release in 15 years
Californian dream-poppers Mazzy Star are set to make a return with their first official release since their 1996 album ‘Among My Swan’.

The Hope Sandoval - pictured above - fronted band will release the single ‘Common Burn’/‘Lay Myself Down’ on October 31 digitally and on vinyl, through Rhymes Of An Hour Records, reports Billboard.

Sandoval last discussed the possibility of a fourth Mazzy Star album in 2009 with Rolling Stone, cryptically saying: “It's true we're still together. We're almost finished [with the fourth record]. But I have no idea what that means.”

Mazzy Star released their debut album, ‘She Hangs Brightly’ in 1990, following it with ‘So Tonight That I Might See’ in 1993, which contained the single ‘Fade Into You’.

Hope Sandoval has released two albums as Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions – 2001’s ‘Bavarian Fruit Bread’ and 2009’s ‘Through The Devil Softly’. She played the Matt Groening curated edition of All Tomorrow’s Parties in Minehead last year.
