    Slowdive have returned with a new version of “Golden Hair”. The reworked track is part of their Sonic Cathedral Singles Club, an ongoing series of limited-edition 7-inch releases.

    The band’s take on Syd Barrett’s adaptation of a James Joyce poem, “Golden Hair” was originally issued on Slowdive’s 1991 EP, Holding Our Breath. Since their comeback five years ago, though, the track has become a staple of their live shows, serving as the ideal closing number.

    This new gorgeous and expanded reworking — clocking in at a hefty nine minutes (!) — reflects the song’s significance in the UK group’s catalog after all this time. It was recorded in 2014, but mixed just this year by Slowdive’s own Neil Halstead.
