Blue Light

David Roback and Hope Sandoval

Rolling Stone reports that Mazzy Star‘s “Sandoval confirms her [sic] and her bandmate David Roback haven’t called it quits and they are still working on their anticipated fourth album. But she declines to give many specifics. ‘It’s true we’re still together,’ she says. ‘We’re almost finished [with the record]. But I have no idea what that means.’”

An album. Really? A NEW album.

Just when you knew you couldn’t get any luckier. I thought the group was done. This is huge. Entire swathes of a person’s life are painted in poetry. If you’re lucky, you’ll find your poet. Nearly a decade of my life, starting in the early nineties, bask in the smokey blue light of Hope Sandoval’s lyrics and David Roback’s music. Pure poetry.

So Tonight That I Might See (1993)

  There's a blue light in my best friend's room
  There's a blue light in his eyes
  There's a blue light, yeah
  I want to see it, shine

  There's a ship that sails by my window
  There's a ship that sails on by
  There's a world under it
  I think I see it, sailing away

  I think it's sailing
  Miles crashing me by
  Crashing me by
  Crashing me by

  There's a world outside my doorstep
  Flames over everyone's heart
  Don't you see them shining
  I want to hear them, beating for me

  I think I hear them
  Waves crashing me by
  Crashing me by
  Crashing me by
