Mazzy Star open up about their forthcoming first new album in 17 years
Mazzy Star have opened up about their forthcoming first album in 17 years.

One half of the band David Roback, also revealed that the band have continued to write and record over the years despite taking so long to release a new record.

He told Rolling Stone: "This new album has a lot of different combinations of instruments, acoustic and electric in different combinations we haven't used so much before. It's kind of a subtle thing we're more aware of, but it's interesting for us to perform this music live now. There's a lot of subtlety in the music, and to actually put that across live, when it happens, it's really exciting."

Roback added: "We never stopped writing or recording. We just stopped performing and releasing things."

The band's fourth studio album 'Seasons Of Your Day' will come out on September 24. It was recorded in California and Norway and written by Hope Sandoval and Roback.

The new record also follows the 2011 release of the single 'Common Burn'/'Lay Myself Down', and features a guest spot from the late guitarist Bert Jansch, on the track 'Spoon'.
