Spiritualized's Ladies and Gentlemen Reissue Details Revealed
If you haven't listened to Spiritualized's 1997 masterwork Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space in a while, now's the time to let it drip. Because this fall, Jason Pierce is celebrating his achievement two ways. First, with a series of ATP "Don't Look Back" gigs featuring Ladies and Gentlemen played straight through. At those gigs, Pierce will be accompanied by a gospel choir, string and horn sections, and special guests. (See the dates below).
Secondly, the psychedelic opus is also getting the reissue treatment. You'll be able to relive all sorts of miraculously terrible trips when a tricked-out Ladies and Gentlemen hits stores November 16 via Sony. And yes, there will be multiple formats.
The standard, single-disc reissue comes with new artwork and a revised take on the opening title track, which will now include a bit of "Can't Help Falling in Love" tacked on as originally intended. Then there's the Special Edition with two bonus CDs filled with 35 outtakes, a cappellas, and remixes-- it will come in a pill-style package (above). And for those truly looking to get their Spiritualized on, there's the Collector's Edition, made up of 12 mini CDs (remember those?!), which is not practical at all, but is kinda cool. The Collector's Edition also comes with the two (not-mini) CDs of bonus material
