It was nearly one year ago today that Fat Possum made the announcement that they hadsigned Spiritualized to their label. Now, a year later, the wait is nearly over for Spiritualized‘s 7th album, Sweet Heart Sweet Light, to be released. With a street date of April 17th, the label has started taking pre-orders for the new record. You can snag a copy on vinyl for $14 here. From the label:
“Shortly after recording Sweet Heart Sweet Light – in far flung locales such as Los Angeles, Reykavik and Wales – Jason found himself weakened by a degenerative liver disease and was subjected to six months of chemo treatment, a procedure that left him virtually housebound while he mixed the album. In a classic case of triumph over tribulation, the resulting album is Spiritualized at their most vibrant; full voiced and utterly sublime. In Jason Spaceman’s orbit rock and roll is the salve and listeners will hear all of the epic grandiosity and brain worming melodies for which they’re renowned, as well as the gorgeous gospel delium that makes hearing a new Spiritualized album an exhilarating and emotional experience.”
