The new single from Sam Gray, out Feb 19th – taken from the debut album ‘Brighter Day’
REM‘s early Nineties single ‘Everybody Hurts‘ has been voted ‘the most depressing song of all time’ by a new survey.
He sees you, me, himself and reunites us all in song; a great big melting pot of angels, souls intertwining as blithely as smoke moves through the air. His voice, the bruised communicator, relays contempt and corruption consistently, bearing a rare romance that can be compared to few other artists.

Spiritualized have unveiled a large North American tour as they prepare to release the album ‘Sweet Heart Sweet Light‘ state-side in April 2012.
