In 2022, it will be exactly 30 years since the Spiritualized debut ‘Lazer Guided Melodies’ was released upon the world. Pitchfork rightly described the album as “an album of hypnotic power that marked a high point in the British reinvention of American musical tradition”. Jason Pierce (ex-Spacemen 3)’s band and their mix of art rock, space rock, neo-psychedelica, soul and gospel would remain captivating throughout their career. Their 1997 album ‘Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space’ even made it to NME’s ‘Album of the Year’, ahead of Radiohead’s ‘OK Computer’ and The Verve's ‘Urban Hymns’ even.
Now it’s time for a new album: ‘Everything was Beautiful’, recorded in no less than 11 studios with more than 30 musicians. Wanna bet it’ll be a gem?
