Spiritualized have posted their new single ‘Hey Jane’ online – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.
The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming new album ‘Sweet Heart Sweet Light’, which was originally scheduled for release on 19th March 19 but was pushed back after frontman Jason Pierce failed to meet the original deadline and will now be out on 16th April. Speaking about the delay, Pierce said:
“I had the rather foolish idea last November that I could deliver the record that’s been sent out and keep working on the real version. I’d meet the delivery date they need for reviews and things like that and nobody would be any the wiser that I’d be carrying on the mixing.”
The album will also feature a cameo from Pierce’s 11-year-old daughter Poppy on the song ‘So Long You Pretty Thing’. She penned the opening verse of the track and will also contribute vocals. The band will also hit the road for a tour next month.
