Spiritualized reveal new album details and extend March tour

Spiritualized have announced the tracklisting and release date of their new studio album 'Sweet Heart Sweet Light', along with adding more dates to their rescheduled UK and Ireland tour.

The band will put out the record, the follow-up to 2008's 'Songs In A&E', on March 19 through the Double Six label.

Speaking about the influences the 10-track album will encompass, frontman J Spaceman – otherwise known as Jason Pierce – namechecked Dennis and Brian Wilson, along with Chuck Berry and jazzman Peter Brötzmann.

Pierce said: "When you make a record, it has to be the single most important thing in your world. This time around, I wanted to do something that encompassed all I love in rock'n'roll music."

The album, which will be the band's seventh, was recorded over the past two years at studios in Wales, Los Angeles and Reykjavik.

The tracklisting for 'Sweet Heart Sweet Light' is:

'Hey Jane'
'Little Girl'
'Get What You Want'
'Too Late'
'Heading For The Top'
'I Am What I Am'
