My Bloody Valentine plans to release a new album and EP in 2012, marking the band’s first material since 1991’s Loveless. This is according to the band’s mastermind, Kevin Shields, who told Mojo (via NME) that he was inspired by the band’s upcoming reissues. “I listened to the stacks of CDs and thought, ‘Shit, this is better than the unreleased tracks on the compilation’. I decided it would be insane not to finish it.”
In an interview with Pitchfork last month, Shields revealed that he was “finishing a record that I had started in the 90s.” He also said that he was working on it with the whole band.
In the meantime, the band will reissue their 1988 debut, Isnt Anything, along with 1991’s Loveless on May 7th via Sony Records. Also available that day is a compilation called EPs 1988-1991, which includes the bands four EPs as well as other rarities and unreleased tracks.
