Ride are back with their second album since reforming — it's titled This is Not a Safe Place and will be out August 16 via Wichita. They once again teamed with producer Erol Alkan and mixer Alan Moulder, both of whom worked on 2017's Weather Diaries, which came together quickly at the end of 2018. The first single is the sparkling “Future Love” which feature Ride's lush, signature harmonies. They've always had a Byrds side to them and that plays out nicely here in a “Twisterella” kind of way. “Future Love is a song about the beginning of a relationship, when everything feels possible,” says the band's Andy Bell. Listen, and check out album art and tracklist, below.
To celebrate news of the new album, Ride play London's tiny Moth Club tonight and have festival dates this summer. All dates listed below.
