In case you haven’t heard…Mazzy Star is back – it’s only been fifteen years! Remember ‘Fade Into You’? The Californian dream pop outfit has a new single ‘Common Burn’, out today. At this point it’s a digital release only via singer Hope Sandoval’s own label Rhymes Of An Hour. A limited edition 7 inch of the single and B-side ‘Lay Myself Down’ will be released in November, according to www.mazzystar.nu. Mazzy Star will also be touring early 2012 before releasing a new album. All good news right!?

Mazzy Star’s new work is typically sedate and intimate. Both ‘Common Burn’ and ‘Lay Myself Down’ are stripped back and mostly acoustic with a few country flares around the edges. Hope Sandoval is sounding as great as ever. The group returns during a resurgence of like minded contemporary acts with a similar feel. Most notably, Widowspeak’s brilliant debut released this August.
