Yesterday Ride debuted "Charm Assault," the first new single from their forthcoming album. And today life gets even better because the shoegaze legends unleashed yet another glorious new track titled "Home Is A Feeling." "Home Is A Feeling" is a brilliant, mesmerizing track that channels Ride's classic vibe. Swoonworthy x infinity.

Andy Bell: "We felt comfortable going vintage on this tune because the album we are making has a pretty broad sonic scope. It’s a short and sweet, melodic tune, with stacked harmonies, reverbed-out guitars, slowed down drums, and a huge distorted bass sound. Erol put his sage-scented electronic wizards hat on to sample up some of our harmonies and make them into a synthesiser preset, which we ended up using on this and some of the other tunes too. We wanted this song to sound jet lagged, so everything on it was recorded with varispeed, either faster or slower than real time. It’s like 1966 Beatles meets 1988 MBV… in other words, Ride."

Mark Gardener: "a slow, wide-screen, sonically, layered, slowed motion warm wash. Like returning home as dawn rises totally exhausted and spangled after a long ..long ...big, great night out"

Bask in the exquisite glow of "Home Is A Feeling" below:



Ride's still untitled album is their first in 20 years. The record was produced by Erol Alkan and is currently being mixed by Alan Moulder. The album is expected out this summer on Wichita Records.
