Ride‘s first new album in 20 years, Weather Diaries, is out June 16. The band has just released one more advance track, the lush, swirling opener, “Lannoy Point.”

As Ride’s Mark Gardner told NME, the song is a meditation on political turmoil: “Lyrically ‘Lannoy Point’ is my reflection on what the fuck is going on with all this backward ‘Little Britain’ depressing, blind faith, Brexit times we find ourselves in. As I muse on in the chorus, I hope that ‘A better sense can start again’ to find our way out of this mess!” Listen below.
