Longtime My Bloody Valentine fans know better than to get too excited at the prospect of new music from Kevin Shields and company. Sometimes, work comes out after a significant delay—as with the long-promised remasters of MBV’s ‘90s output, or the group’s newest album, MBV—or not at all. So it’s with a pinch of salt that we report that yesterday, a poster on Reddit’s Indieheads forum discovered this snippet in Shields’ performer profile for Sigur Ros’ norður og niður festival:
kevin is currently finishing an all analog vinyl version of loveless and isn’t anything and is also working on material for a new my bloody valentine album to be released in 2018.
This is all hypothetical for the time being, but we’ll let you know if and when Shields and/or the rest of the band confirms it. The norður og niður festival will take place in Reykjavik, Iceland from December 27-30; just be careful of running into a theater troupe on the flight over.
