Spiritualized has delayed the upcoming release of its seventh LP, Sweet Heart Sweet Light, according to SPIN.com. Originally set for release in mid-March, the follow up to 2008’s Songs in A&E will now arrive in late March or early April.

On an interesting side note, advanced copies of  Sweet Heart Sweet Light have already been sent out to reviewers, despite the fact that the album is not yet completed. How’s this possible? ”I had the rather foolish idea last November that I could deliver the record that’s been sent out and keep working on the real version,” Spiritualized mastermind Jason Pierce told SPIN. “I’d meet the delivery date they need for reviews and things like that and nobody would be any the wiser that I’d be carrying on with the mixing.” So look out for those copies on eBay in the near future.

When asked the difference between the review copies and the eventual final product, Pierce said, “I think it’s quite different.” He added: ”People say that all the little mixing moves I’m doing now are just for myself, but to me they’re no different than the mixing moves I did at the start of the process. Balancing things is what mixing is. Some bits are more realized and closer to what I wanted them to sound like, but I’m in the unenviable position now where the album that’s out there isn’t finished.”

Below, you can find a bootleg recording of the new album’s opening track, “Hey Jane”, from an October 11th performance in London. The tracklist and the outfit’s upcoming tour dates, as well.
