Kevin Shields answers your questions in the new issue of Uncut, dated January 2014 and out on Thursday (November 28).

My Bloody Valentine’s leader discusses topics including m b v, guitars, Daft Punk’s marketing budget, Patti Smith and Primal Scream in the piece.

Shields also reveals that he has a few new songs he’s written in the next year that he hopes to release at some point soon – including one with a surprising sound.

“There are a few tunes I made in the past year,” he says, “and one of them should definitely be on this EP. It’s very weird. It’s a bit Springsteenish. I know, I’ve written my Bruce Springsteen song! It’s hard to believe, isn’t it?

“Why is it Springsteen-ish? I don’t know. Maybe I’ll have to change it so it doesn’t sound like that anymore.”

The new issue of Uncut, dated January 2014, is out on Thursday (November 28).
