Jason Pierce is never one to rush things, but the six years between Sweet Heart Sweet Light and the new Spiritualized album is the longest he's taken to make a new record. Part of that may be because he did almost everything himself. "Making this record on my own sent me more mad than anything I’ve done before," says Pierce. "We’d been playing these big shows and I really wanted to capture that sound we were making but, without the funds to do, I had to find a way to work within the constraints of what money I had. So I bought a laptop and made it all in a little room in my house." You'd never know it from the songs released so far which are as gorgeous and lush as you'd expect, and And Nothing Hurt looks as vast as the outer space trip Pierce is taking on the album's cover.

We wrote the above in our anticipated albums of fall 2018 list about the new Spiritualized album, And Nothing Hurt, which comes out next week (9/7) via Bella Union/Fat Possum. You don't have to wait until next week to hear it though, the whole thing is streaming now.

Spiritualized are also touring, including a Brooklyn show on 10/11 at Kings Theatre (tickets).
