Spiritualized - Sweet Heart Sweet Light

This has been a pretty great morning for long, sprawling, multi-part songs! First, there was the excellent 13-minute version of the Gorillaz/James Murphy/Andre 3000 track “DoYaThing.” Now, there’s this.

British drug-rock eminences Spiritualized are on their way back with the new album Sweet Heart Sweet Light, their first full-length since Songs In A&E four years ago. The image above is its slightly confounding album cover. And below, you’ll find a stream of the stretched-out nine-minute album track “Hey Jane,” which sounds like classic Spiritualized in all the best ways possible.

  1. Awesome. Can’t wait to check out the whole thing.

  2. wow….that kinda sucked first listen.

  3. …….but got better and better with consecutive plays.

  4. “stretched-out nine-minute album track “Hey Jane,” which sounds like classic Velvet Underground in all the best ways possible.”

    ftfy

  5. This sounds like Spiritualized by-the-numbers but it’s so bouncy that I can’t help but get caught up in it. I agree with Captain Queso that after the five minute mark it gets a bit much but I still like it. The ending would be great if it was two minutes earlier.

  6. So I guess I was the only one that smiled so big 3 minutes in and then screamed in joy and didn’t stop smiling until the song perfectly ended?

  7. Good song, album cover worthy of Lonely Island

  8. Good Song. I will be checking out the album.

  9. If the length and title aren’t a reference to Hey Jude, I’ll be damned.

  10. “Jack is in his corset, and Jane is in her vest,
    And me I’m in a rock’n'roll band Hah!” – Lou Reed (like I needed to say that)
