So what do we do while we’re still here? This is a photograph of that sense of yearning.'

Spiritualized's J Spaceman plays 16 different instruments on this latest album Everything Was Beautiful which was put down at 11 different studios, as well as at his home.

The result is some of the most “live” sounding recordings that Spiritualized have released since the Live At The Albert Hall record of 1998, around the time of Ladies and Gentlemen, We Are Floating In Space.'
Available on CD and black vinyl.
