Ride announce new EP and share brand new track ‘Catch You Dreaming’

The band have also announced a one-off London show.

Ride have announced a new digital and 12-inch EP, which will serve as a follow-up to last year’s  LP, ‘Weather Diaries’.

The Oxford band – led by Oasis/Beady Eye‘s Andy Bell and Mark Gardener – released their comeback album ‘Weather Diaries’, their first record in 21 years, back in June last year.

It featured the singles ‘Charm Assault’, ‘Home Is A Feeling’, ‘Pulsar’ and the anti-Theresa May song ‘All I Want’.

Four track EP ‘Tomorrow’s Shore’ comes out next month and was produced with Erol Alkan and Alan Moulder, just like ‘Weather Diaries’.

The band have released ‘Catch You Dreaming’ from the EP, which was actually a leftover from last year’s ‘Weather Diaries’

“‘Catch You Dreaming’ is written from the perspective of being one of the last two people alive, watching as the Universe is ending,” explains Andy Bell of the song.

“The protagonist looks back over the time when humanity existed, realising that we as humans brought about our own inevitable demise. Then the couple look back over their own lives of shared memories and as they are sharing this moment, everything vaporises. It’s a love song about fate, nostalgia, and having no regrets.

“The song itself was intended to be a part of ‘Weather Diaries’, and recording started during the sessions in Autumn 2016. But we never managed to record a definitive version at the time and decided to come back to it later as part of a follow up EP, which is now finished, and titled ‘Tomorrow’s Shore’.

“The EP was made with an identical process to ‘Weather Diaries’ and we see it as very much tied to the album.”

‘Tomorrow’s Shore’ is out February 16, available digitally and on limited edition 12-inch, via Witchita Recordings.

The band have also announced a show at London’s ULU on Febraury 16.
