Next Tuesday, California alt-rock crew Mazzy Star will release their first music in some 15 years with the single “Common Burn”. As a pre-Halloween treat, that effort’s B-Side, “Lay Myself Down”, is available for an early spin. The sleepy, hazy little number features the standard instrumentation for great desert rock (wailing slide guitar, lonesome-sounding acoustic strumming) and is the perfect track for the band to emerge from the wilderness with. Check it out over at Pitchfork.

Update: Check out both “Common Burn” and “Lay Myself Down” in full below (via We All Want Someone To Shout For).

The “Common Burn” single is out digitally on October 31st via Rhymes of an Hour Records. A limited edition colored vinyl will be released on November 8th.

A welcome return…A band that also never seemed to get the respect they deserved. Let’s hope a tour is in the works!
