Follow the road...
Spiritualized have unveiled a second single from their forthcoming album, ‘And Nothing Hurt’.
‘Here It Comes (The Road) Let’s Go’ – which follows ‘I’m Your Man’ released in June – features on the band’s first album in six years.
Speaking about the track, frontman Jason Pierce says: “‘Here It Comes (The Road) Let’s Go’ is a list of instructions that, if followed, allows the listener to find my house. The route is real but it’s on the west coast of America so the house being mine is a fiction.
“I love the line about the cop waiting up all night to add to his total busts for the day. I wanted it to all end in happiness but it leaves with just a small trace of sadness.”
It may well close with a forlorn tone, but ‘Here It Comes (The Road) Let’s Go’ is moreover a positive listen, laden as it is with soaring brass, melodious hums, and comforting country twangs. Listen below:
