It’s been over fifteen years since we last heard from Mazzy Star. Most fondly remembered for the hazy ballad “Fade Into You” (from the album So Tonight That I Might See), the duo has been on extended hiatus since the late Nineties. Singer Hope Sandoval most recently appeared on the last Massive Attack album, and has been busy with her band Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions. Meanwhile, instrumentalist David Roback has done his share of solo performing work, in addition to a production docket and a side career as an actor.
However, Mazzy Star is back! They actually reformed a couple of years ago, but “Common Burn” is the first new track to emerge from the duo since their reformation. It’s as if they never left–the song has the typically slow-burning Mazzy Star quality. It’s being released as a single next week, with an album likely to follow in 2012.
I hope you all join me in saying welcome back, Mazzy Star! It’s been too long!!
