After a week of morse-code teasing, Spiritualized unveiled new music along with details behind their first new album since 2012's Sweet Heart Sweet Light. The band's eighth studio album And Nothing Hurt features nine songs and will be released on September 7th. Two of the songs are available to enjoy now -- watch the short film for "I'm Your Man" starring J Spaceman (aka Jason Pierce) which sees our hero visiting The Joshua Tree and Gram Parsons' memorial; plus stream the studio version of "A Perfect Miracle," a song Spiritualized debuted live in 2012 but has been unreleased until now. Take it all in below:



Over the last few years Jason Pierce has been warning fans that the next Spiritualized album may be his last because he thinks so much ground has been covered and "everybody's said everything" already. For example he told The Quietus in 2017 that making a Spiritualized record is an extensive process and it only makes sense to continue if he has something meaningful to say:

"I feel like there aren’t going to be many more; I said a while back it may very well be my last record. I wanted to make something that was really worthy of that, a kind of glorious ‘this is what it’s all about’ kind of thing. And it reaches far – it covers a lot of ground. It’s not just another collection of songs – it’s a big record. It’s also [taken] years of work…I don’t want it to be a light undertaking. I want it to say something and be a big deal."

Today Pierce issued a statement addressing his "final record" comments and said he's not sure what the future will hold:

“I was quite sincere about that and I still feel like it might be the case. It was such hard work. I found myself going crazy for so long. It’s not like there’s no coming back, I’m fine now… it’s just such a hard thing to do, to make a record like this on your own.”
