Here’s another win for 2013: California dream pop veterans Mazzy Star will release their first studio album in 17 years. Titled Seasons of Your Day, the long-awaited follow up to 1996’s Among My Swan was co-written and co-produced by founding members David Roback and Hope Sandoval. It will hits stores September 24th via their own imprint Rhymes of an Hour.
The album was recorded in California and is summed up as ”music for lovers, music for broken hearts.” My Bloody Valentine’s Colm Ã CÃosóig and the late U.K. folk legend Bert Jansch guest on the record, the latter having returned the favor to Roback, who contributed guitar work to Jansch’s final studio album, 2006’s The Black Swan.
Among the album’s 10 tracks are “Common Burn” and “Lay Myself Down”, both of which surfaced as a split-single in late 2011. Stream both below, in addition to their latest cut, “California”, which eerily captures how a mediative West Coast stroll should sound (via SPIN). Stay tuned for its accompanying music video, in addition to a supporting fall tour.
