Earlier this year, Spiritualized announced a campaign of reissues that will see all their albums return to vinyl. They previously released 1992’s Lazer Guided Melodies and 1995’s Pure Phase, and now their 1997 album, widely considered the band’s masterpiece, Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space is up next to be released. It’s out September 10 via Fat Possum.
Last fall, Vinyl Me Please did a limited-run reissue of Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space on blue vinyl. Fat Possum’s reissue is being released on both black vinyl and “Neptune Blue” vinyl. Check out a trailer video as well as the official music video for the single “Come Together” below.
“I like Pure Phase the best of these four records, but people still say Ladies and Gentlemen is where everything kind of came together,” Pierce says in a press release. “I’m still astounded by both records, where they don’t let up. There’s no kind of curfew. Or no ‘you can’t stay on that section for that length of time.’ They sit on where they arrive and stay there, and I found that kind of amazing.”
