Glider is an EP by My Bloody Valentine, released in April 1990 by Creation Records. The EP was also the group's first release on the Sire Records label in the USA. Containing the lead single "Soon", which featured the first recorded use of Shields' "glide guitar" technique,[1] the EP peaked at number 2 on the UK Indie Chart[2] and the band toured in summer 1990 to support its release.[3]

An alternate mix of "Soon" was later included on the Loveless album.
