Spiritualized return with new album - Songs In A&E
Watch their performance on Later with Jools Holland
After much anticipation, and a longer than expected wait, SPIRITUALIZED
are set to release their new 18-track sixth studio album, \'SONGS IN
A&E\', on Universal/Spaceman Records on May 26th. The album will be
preceded by the single, \'SOUL ON FIRE\', which will be available digitally
as well as on CD and 7\" vinyl formats on May 19th.
Since the release of the last studio album, \'AMAZING GRACE\', there
followed a lengthy period of touring but this was unfortunately curtailed
by a serious illness, which struck main man Jason Pierce in 2005. Time
spent in intensive care interrupted the writing and recording of the
follow up record prior to, and after, his illness.
Inevitably, this setback turned into an inspiration.....
You can check out the new material on this Friday\'s Later With Jools
Holland on BBC2 at 11.35pm. This follows a brilliant appearance on the
Later Live show on Tuesday - they played the single \'Soul on fire\' and
if you missed it - and even if you didn\'t and just want to see it
again - you can catch it here:
We have had an amazing reaction to the album already, here\'s some of
what they\'ve been saying:
\"A work of undisputed genius\" NME
