Ride to release first album in 20 years

01 December 2016, 17:04 | Written by Laurence Day

Legendary shoegazers Ride are currently in the studio working on their first record in over two decades.

Producer Erol Alkan is at the helm - he revealed the news on social media, with reps confirming the news. Ride's most recent studio record, Tarantula, was released in 1996.

The Oxford-based outfit reunited for a series of headline shows and festival dates in 2014, and last year celebrated the 25th anniversary of seminal debut Nowhere.

London-based Alkan has produced with Late Of The Pier, Mystery Jets, and The Long Blondes in the past - he's also a prolific remixer, promoter, and artist in his own right.
