Twenty-one years after their shoe-gaze masterpiece, Loveless, it sounds like My Bloody Valentine might be close to completing a new album. “I’m just finishing a record that I had started in the 90s. It was going to be, like, the next record,” MBV leader Kevin Shields told Pitchfork. As exciting as the news may be, we wouldn’t hold our breath just yet: This is a band whose reissues turn into long-delayed projects after all.
