Spiritualized stream song made from space sounds - listen
The track features on the Record Store Day 'Space Project' LP
The six-minute song, which you can listen to below, features on the 'Space Project' compilation album which will be released on April 19 for Record Store Day. Artists were invited to use sounds recorded during the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 space probes on the album. Spiritualized appear under the name The Spiritualized Mississippi Space Program alongside Beach House, Youth Lagoon, Mutual Benefit, The Antlers, Blues Control, Benoit & Sergio, Porcelain Raft and others.
According to a press statement: "The 'sounds' recorded by the Voyager probes aren't sounds in the conventional sense; rather, they are electromagnetic radiation fluctuations in the magnetosphere of the planets, moons, and large asteroids the Voyager probes traveled near. Each celestial body is composed of different elements, has its own size and mass, and therefore sounds unique." There are seven pairs of songs about different celestial bodies.
The album will be available on vinyl, CD, and as a seven-inch box set.
