Slide is an EP by the band Luna.

Released shortly after Lunapark, Slide follows in familiar footsteps of its predecessor. Consisting of two album tracks from the debut (Slide and a stripped-down demo version of Hey Sister) and an original track (Rollercoaster), the rest of this EP is peppered with cover songs and introduces Sean Eden on two of the six tracks. As would become common on Luna EPs and singles, the cover songs provided on Slide have been given the Luna treatment and aside from The Velvet Underground's "Ride Into the Sun", the songs sound remarkably different from their original versions.
