After having sold over 2 million albums, David Roback and Hope Sandoval have been fairly quiet since the breakthrough success of Fade Into You propelled them from critical acclaim to worldwide stardom (a new track on the soundtrack to Batman and a song on Bertolucci's Stealing Beauty have been all fans have heard from Mazzy Star in the past year). The first single/video from their highly anticipated new album is "Flowers in December," serviced to college and alternative radio and video outlets (worked through the holidays).

Reviews:

''Among My Swan'' is the third album by the band Mazzy Star. Although ''Among My Swan'' did not contain any US Billboard Hot 100 hits like its predecessor, ''So Tonight That I Might See'', this album did garner the band its highest-ranking single on the UK Singles Chart, when "Flowers In December" reached #40 in November 1996. The album's second single, "I've Been Let Down", did not chart in either the United States or the UK.

Among My Swan relied less on the echo effect that was nearly ubiquitous in all tracks on the previous two albums. Hope Sandoval's voice is paired with simple acoustic instrumentation that marks most of the tracks. The guitar and harmonica accompaniment on "I've Been Let Down" is a prime example of this. These tracks are not markedly different in sound or feel from the preceding two albums.

''Among My Swan'' is widely considered to be Mazzy Star's final album; although the band has not officially broken up, they have released no new material since the release of "I've Been Let Down" as a single in 1996, and lead singer Hope Sandoval has gone on to form Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions. - Wikipedia
