Spiritualized have released the brand new song ‘Here It Comes (The Road) Let’s Go’.
The news comes after Jason Pierce finally announced the first new album in six years. And Nothing Hurt is out September 7th via Fat Possum/Bella Union and to mark the announcement they shared two brand new tracks.
To follow-up those two previously release tracks, ‘Here It Comes (The Road) Let’s Go’ becomes the third instalment.
Discussing the track in a statement, Spiritualized’s Jason Pierce said ‘Here It Comes (The Road) Let’s Go’ is “a list of instructions” that leads the listener to his home.
“The route is real but it’s on the west coast of America, so the house being mine is a fiction.”
here it is:
More recently, Pierce emphatically shut down any talk of bringing back shoegaze pioneers Spacemen 3.
Pierce, who works under the moniker J. Spaceman, co-fronted and founded alternative rock band Spacemen 3 alongside Peter Kember in 1982. The band went on to earn a cult following during the 80s before the band split in 1991 following a difficult relationship between the pair.
Talk of a reunion circles on a regular basis and Pierce admitted that he turned down a £2million offer to get the band back together. Now, while in conversations with Consequence of Sound’s Kyle Meredith he said he’s “not so bothered to find out” if the band still has any of its previous chemistry and isn’t curious to see if they can work together again.
“Why?” he responded when asked about a potential reunion. “I just don’t see the point. I find it really difficult as to why.
“It’s a weird one because I’m not wild about anything that’s, like, people just replaying their [old music]. I’m not so against other people doing it,” he continued before adding “but I don’t see me doing it” with what will be a dagger to the hearts of all Spacemen 3 fans.
