Spiritualized released the first single off their upcoming album Sweet Heart Sweet Light, out April 17th on Fat Possum. “Hey Jane” is a nine-minute epic split into multiple parts, the second phase featuring a budding guitar solo that eventually leads a massive wave of crunchy guitars and clamoring percussion. Sweet Heart Sweet Light is said to have a more pop-oriented direction than past Spiritualized releases, and the second part of the song – particularly when lead singer Jason Pierce repeats the title continuously – is representative of this. “Hey Jane” is great song to kick off the weekend, and one that gets us even more pumped for Sweet Heart Sweet Light, Spiritualized’s first LP since 2008’s Songs in A&E.
Oh yeah, and one more thing… the album cover above is for real. Pre-order it here.
