Recorded at Black Barn Studios in Ripley, Surrey by Matt Oliver (and then mixed at Swanyard by Alan Moulder), the Today Forever EP took the EP format to its limits as the band followed their policy of not wishing to highlight any one particular track over the others by filming a promo to each of the 4 tracks and releasing these as a video EP to accompany the CD single, 12″ single and Cassette single versions.
The recording sessions were in January 1991 with the first Gulf War providing the news backdrop, whilst the music press were (almost) unanimously declaring Ride and Nowhere as the best new band and best album in their 1990 end of year polls.
Ride had to take a short break from the mixing sessions to support The Cure at the Great British Music Weekend at Wembley Arena.
The single charted at number 13 and provided Ride with their first Top of the Pops invite – the only other bands playing live on the show that week were the Happy Mondays (with Loose Fit) and Chesney Hawkes (with.. well you know the one).
