Irish shoegazing legends My Bloody Valentine released their new album, m b v, midnight Saturday (February 2) via their website.
The band also have uploaded the entire album, the nine-track follow-up to 1991's Loveless, to YouTube, so fans can get a taste before taking the plunge. You can hear all nine songs below.
The album is available only through the band's site, it seems, in the following formats: download only, CD/download or 180g vinyl/CD/download.
"I think with this record, people who like us will immediately connect with something," frontman Kevin Shields told NME.com in November. "Based on the very, very few people who've heard stuff — some engineers, the band, and that's about it — some people think it's stranger than 'Loveless'. I don't. I feel like it really frees us up, and in the bigger picture it's 100 per cent necessary."
