Shoegaze legends Ride have shared "Pulsar," a hypnotic new single. Currently touring their critically acclaimed 2017 album Weather Diaries (out now on Wichita Recordings), the quick unveiling of more new material in the shape of "Pulsar" is sure to delight the legions of fans who rapturously welcomed Ride back after a twenty year hiatus. Built around a central pulsing rhythm, and signature walls of swooping, fuzzed out guitars, "Pulsar" sees Ride reunited once again with Erol Alkan, the DJ, producer and remixer who produced Weather Diaries.

Ride's Loz Colbert says: "'Pulsar' reimagines old organ samples, transmissions from space, effects, heavy beats and pulsing chords. The song title tips its head to the 60's instrumental 'Telstar' in name and theme; and the idea was to come up with some kind of 'space anthem' about light, existence, travel and return. The band all contributed to make the song what it is, and it all really came together in the studio when we worked with Erol Alkan once again, following on from the success of the Weather Diaries sessions."
