British shoegazing icons Ride reformed in 2014 and have been touring. They announced back in December that they were working on a new album and yesterday they shared its first single, “Charm Assault,” which was their first new song in 21 years. Wasting no time, they have already shared another new song, “Home Is a Feeling.” Whereas “Charm Assault” was more of a straight up rocker befitting their later output, rather than sounding much like their earlier iconic shoegaze material, “Home Is a Feeling” is dreamier and closer to something you could found on their first two albums, Nowhere or Going Blank Again. Listen below.

Ride haven’t released a new studio album since 1996’s Tarantula, which was put out after the band split up and was poorly received. The new album is scheduled for release this summer on Wichita and Erol Alkan (Klaxons, Mystery Jets, Beyond the Wizards Sleeve) is producing it. The quartet’s original run lasted from 1988 to 1996 and included four studio albums (Nowhere, Going Blank Again, Carnival of Light, and Tarantula). In 2015 they also released Nowhere25, a 25th anniversary reissue of their 1990-released debut album Nowhere. A few years ago we interviewed Ride’s Mark Gardener and Andy Bell about Nowhere and you can read that article here. And then in 2015 in another interview we did with Gardener he went through Nowhere track-by-track and you can read that here.
