Spiritualized‘s Jason Pierce has confirmed that he is working on a new album, teaming up with Youth of Killing Joke to make new music.
The announcement was made on the Spiritualized Facebook page and later confirmed by Killing Joke. The album is being recorded between London and Spain and will be the follow up to 2012 release ‘Sweet Heart Sweet Light.’
As well as being a member of Killing Joke, Youth (real name Martin Glover, pictured right) has also helped produce albums for The Verve, Embrace, Beth Orton and The Futureheads. He and Pierce are expected to finish recording together in the first half of 2015.
Spiritualized recently confirmed two US festival dates. The band will appear at Levitation (formerly named Austin Psych Fest) in May and will also feature alongside headliners The Strokes at Shaky Knees in Georgia, Atlanta later that same month.
Last year Spiritualized revealed a new track called ‘Always Together With You (The Bridge Song)’, which featured on the ‘Space Project’ compilation album, for which artists were invited to use sounds recorded during the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 space probes on the album.
Speaking about his involvement in the album, which also featured contributions from The Antlers, Beach House and Youth Lagoon, Pierce admitted he did it because he was “broke” and needed the money.
