Mazzy Star Reunion Album Due Early 2012; Sample New "Common Burn"

Legendary SoCal dream pop band Mazzy Star will return in 2012 with their fourth studio album and first in over 15 years. The as-yet-untitled new project from singer Hope Sandoval (pic) and guitarist Dave Roback will get a preview next week as two new songs "Common Burn" and "Lay Myself Down" hit the digital stores and radio. Since the band's hiatus in the late 90's, Sandoval released a pair of albums as Hope Sandoval and The Warm Inventions, the most recent of which Through the Devil Softly, was released in 2009. It was during interviews for that project that Sandoval announced that she and Roback were working together again on a new Mazzy Star album.
