My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields has revealed that the band plan to record a new EP this autumn.

Speaking after a gig by The Proper Ornaments at the Lexington in London last night (June 19), Kevin Shields revealed he was "working on some new songs at the moment" that will form the basis of an EP.

The release has been in the pipeline since last year's long-awaited 'm b v' album, but Shields is only now preparing to record the tracks. "We plan on going into the studio October/November time," he confirmed, raising prospects of an unusually prompt follow-up to My Bloody Valentine's third studio album.

'm b v' was released on 2 February 2013 via My Bloody Valentine's website. It was the band's first new material to see the light of day since second album 'Loveless', 21 years earlier.

The album was left off the Mercury Music Prize shortlist because the group didn't have a major distribution deal. "Isn't Mercury a phone company or something, anyway? What's that got to do with music? We're banned by them, and do you know why? Because we're not on Amazon or iTunes," he said at the time. "That's one of the qualifying criteria. You have to have major distribution or be on iTunes or Amazon."
