DOWNLOAD: Sun City Girls - Mr. Lonely Viola (MP3)
Beginning in April, things are going to start getting extremely busy for the folks in Spiritualized. Songs in A&E, their first full length LP in 5 years, is set to to be released in Europe on May 26th (US date TBD). A single for the song "Soul on Fire" will also precede the album release by one week and will be available as a 7-inch and digital download. The album has a whopping 18 tracks and features a recurring track entitled "Harmony" which appears at 6 different points throughout the record. Full tracklist below.
J. Spaceman and Sun City Girls also did the soundtrack to the Harmony Korine film Mr. Lonely (trailer). What's with this recurring "harmony" motif Spaceman? Anyhow, the soundtrack will be available via Drag City on April 28th, and the movie....
In Paris, a young American who works as a Michael Jackson lookalike meets Marilyn Monroe, who invites him to her commune in Scotland, where she lives with Charlie Chaplin and her daughter, Shirley Temple.....will be showing May 5th at ICF Cener in NYC. More dates and cities are listed at the end of this post. Until then, preview a track from it above, and check out the tracklist (also) below.
We had our live Spiritualized appetites whetted late last year with a handful of intimate and beautiful Acoustic Mainlines shows. There will be three more Acoustic Mainlines gigs in the US in April, including a stop at Coachella on April 27 in the Mojave Tent. Then in July Spiritualized will embark on an Electric Mainlines Tour which will kick-off with an appearance at the Pitchfork Music Festival on July 20th. After Pitchfork they will continute their Electric Mainlines tour throughout the US until sometime in August when they'll head overseas for gigs in Japan and Europe. In September they'll be back in the states to wrap up the Electric Mainlines tour.
There is a Goldfrapp v Spiritualized remix included on the cd & digital release of the next Goldfrapp single, 'Happiness', released by Mute Records in April.Tour dates and everything else below....
