Spiritualized haven’t put out a record since 2012’s Sweet Heart Sweet Light, but that might be about to change.
Puzzlingly, on Saturday night (6/2) the band wiped out all of the content from their social media accounts and replaced it with a morse code video. Curiously, they also swapped their social media profile pictures to the band’s logo superimposed on a solid orange background.
The band’s fans got straight to work and surmised that the code spells out “A Perfect Miracle,” which is also the name of a previously unrecorded Spiritualized track.
Many believe the worked out morse code result could either be the name of the band’s new single or the name of an upcoming record.
Frontman Jason Pierce did indicate in 2016 that the band would put out a new album in 2017 and that it would be their last,
If Pierce is to be taken literally, he’s a year off his mark, but his word that this could be Spiritualized’s valedictory effort could very well be the case.
In an interview with The Quietus in 2017 he said: “I feel like there aren’t going to be many more; I said a while back it may very well be my last record. I wanted to make something that was really worthy of that, a kind of glorious ‘this is what it’s all about’ kind of thing. And it reaches far – it covers a lot of ground. It’s not just another collection of songs – it’s a big record. It’s also [taken] years of work…I don’t want it to be a light undertaking. I want it to say something and be a big deal.”
