Spiritualized Announce 20th Anniversary Reissue of “Amazing Grace”
Spiritualized and Fat Possum Records announce the reissue of Amazing Grace on January 19, 2024 as part of the second volume of The Spaceman Reissue Program: Curated by J Spaceman. Remastered for vinyl in London by engineer Matt Colton, the 180 gram album features lacquer cuts by Metropolis Mastering, presented in a gatefold jacket designed by Mark Farrow. It will be available in both a standard black vinyl pressing and limited edition dove grey vinyl. Accompanying this announcement are official videos for “Cheapster,” “She Kissed Me (It Felt Like a Hit),” and the never-previously-released “Rated X.”
In addition to the reissue, Spiritualized will headline an East Coast tour throughout November, ahead of December shows supporting Queens of the Stone Age. Tickets are on-sale now.
Overlooked at the time, Amazing Grace is possibly the heaviest and most intimate Spiritualized record. A wild collection of blazing garage rock songs and beautifully tender, sometimes devastatingly sad, ballads. They are songs that reach for help from a broken place, ragged and lonely, in love with a world hanging by a thread. The feeling of the gospel standard that inspired the title – “through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come” – hangs like a shadow over the whole record, and J Spaceman’s heart and soul lies very close to the microphone.
