Slowdive Announce New Album “everything is alive” Along With An Upcoming NA, UK, & Ireland Tour

Posted on 06/20/2023

Slowdive have announced their new album, everything is alive, out September 1st, along with unveiling a North American, UK and Ireland tour (on sale Friday, June 23rd). Six years after the group’s monumental return and self-titled album, everything is alive finds Slowdive—vocalists and guitarists Rachel Goswell and Neil Halstead, guitarist Christian Savill, bassist Nick Chaplin, and drummer Simon Scott—locating ever more contours of its immersive, elemental sound. “kisses” arrives as Slowdive’s surest pop moment yet, set to Naples-by-night via its Noel Paul-directed video.

The fifth album from shoegaze giants Slowdive contains the duality of a familiar internal language mixed with the exaltation of new beginnings. everything is alive is transportive, searching and aglow, the work of a classic band continuing to project its unmistakable voice to the future. Reflecting on lead single “kisses,” Halstead said, “It wouldn’t feel right to make a really dark record right now. The album is quite eclectic emotionally, but it does feel hopeful.”

On the video, a dreamlike portrait of a Neapolitan teen giving rides to everyone he knows, Paul says “If this video evokes emotion, it’s largely due to our excellent cast. In particular Charlie and Claudia, two courageous and beautiful souls who threw themselves into their roles and set a tone of fearless vulnerability.”


everything is alive is exactly what the title suggests: an exploration into the shimmering nature of life and the universal touch points within it. Spanning psychedelic soundscapes, pulsating 80’s electronic elements and John Cale inspired journeys, the album lands immediately as something made for the future; which figures, as their fanbase has grown younger and younger as time has gone on, and their influence on forward thinking musical artists continues to prevail.

For a genre that is often thought of as divisive, and often warrants introspection, here Slowdive show their craft as the masters of it by pushing it outwards, beyond the singular; the end result being a record which feels as emotional and cathartic as it is optimistic.
