ATP/R to release Spiritualized - Ladies And Gentlemen Collector's Edition

Thursday 19th November, 2009

It is now 12 years since ‘Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space’ made a profound impact in the summer of 1997, both critically and commercially, with its psychedelic soundscapes and heart-rending lyrics. It has influenced a whole range of musicians ever since.  It was NME’s album of the year for 1997 and reached No.4 in the official charts. Originally packaged as a giant pill offering a written prescription, the concept was creatively inspired reflecting the depth of emotion and trauma laid bare on this truly remarkable work. The album will be re-released with new artwork on special limited edition formats with 2 CDs of bonus content. These bonus tracks give a valuable insight into the artist’s work-in-progress; and include demos, instrumental versions and session mixes which highlight an aim for perfection prior to recording the definitive version.

ATP Recordings / Spaceman are pleased to be able to offer the very limited collectors edition. This includes 12 x 3” Mini CD’s of the complete album track-by-track, a homage to the original release. This will be accompanied by 2 bonus discs (see this page for tracklisting). For those who don’t wish to open the blister pack, each unit will come with a code to download the original album in MP3 format.

Limited to just 1000 units, each collectors edition will come with a prescription numbered out of 1000 and signed by J Spaceman.  Anyone who pre-orders the collectors edition before November 30th can have their own name, or name of their choosing printed on the prescription. The Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space Collectors edition, will be sent out from the UK on December 16th.  If you do not wish to pay postage and handling, there will be an option to pick it up from the Barbican show on December 16th or 17th.
