We all know that Bob Pollard doesn't stop when he gets going on songwriting, and it looks like that's being applied to the reunited Guided By Voices as well. The OG GBV: Robert Pollard, Tobin Sprout, Greg Demos, Mitch Mitchell and Kevin Fennell will release English Little League on Apr. 30. Check out the song "She Lives in an Airport" via Rolling Stone below.

The release materials say "Deeper and less immediately accessible than last year's Class Clown Spots a UFO (for instance), but no less richly striated with layers of musical goo, this album is the work as much of a guild of master craftsmen as of a singular visionary genius." I guess GBV will get deep on on us this time instead of pop banter.

As far as the classic GBV reunion ... it almost didn't happen, other than reuniting to play a few shows. Eventually Robert Pollard changed his mind: "At first I said: no reunion, period. And definitely no record or re-formation. But the tour went so well; the response was really unexpected. I thought at some point that a lot of people would like to hear new GBV music. The chemistry was still there."
