Spiritualized have spent 2021 reissuing their first four albums and the last of those, 2001's Let it Come Down, will be out October 22 via Fat Possum. You can pre-order it on ivory vinyl in the BV shop.
The album was a bit different than the three that preceded it, in that it was largely orchestral with less of a reliance on Pierce's signature drone, making use of every instrument imaginable, not to mention a choir. "It’s a funny record to me because in a way it’s so conventional but it’s got some of our most sublime moments," says Pierce. "A lot of people say Ladies & Gentlemen is where it happened because it’s when they first got aboard, found out about this band. But people who got into it through Let It Come Down are as passionate about that album and then moved backwards to find the stuff that came before it. Some of it had ideas that didn’t quite hit but when it does hit, it’s way beyond where I thought it was gonna go; it’s got these extraordinary parts that I don’t think I could get anywhere near again."
