Neo-psych art rock legend Spiritualized has unveiled “Here It Comes (The Road) Let’s Go,” the second single from the band’s upcoming record And Nothing Hurt, the outfit’s first album in six years. “Here It Comes (The Road) Let’s Go” is a follow up to “I’m Your Man,” which dropped this past June.
“‘Here It Comes (The Road) Let’s Go’ is a list of instructions that, if followed, allows the listener to find my house,” said frontman Jason “J. Spaceman” Pierce, regarding the lyrics of the song. “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.”
That being said, the bright brass and singalong chorus makes the track an overall joy to listen to.
Pierce has previously hinted that And Nothing Hurt could be the last Spiritualized album, and said that it was the first he’d made entirely on his own. “If I’m honest,” he wrote in a statement to announce the album, “all I wanted was for someone to come and play the part and bring their own thing to the record.”
And Nothing Hurt is set to drop on September 7 through Fat Possum.
