    J Spaceman has released “Crazy,” a relatable country soul ballad about bad timing. It’s the latest preview of Everything Was Beautiful, his upcoming album as Spiritualized.

    Country singer Nikki Lane contributes backing vocals to “Crazy,” in which Spaceman describes falling head over heels in love. “And I know you can’t love me now, not today,” he sings, with a tinge of regret. “All of my thoughts are of you/ But I hope in time that we might find a way.” Watch the self-directed music video, partially inspired by Andy Warhol’s Kiss, below.

    In a statement about Everything Was Beautiful, Spaceman recalled thriving in the “beautiful solitude” of the pandemic, taking walks through an empty “Roman London” which were filled with birdsong. The strolls helped Spaceman make sense of the music in his head.


    He played 16 different instruments on the seven-track album, which was recorded in 11 different studios, as well as in his home. Spaceman also recruited more than 30 musicians and singers, including his daughter Poppy, long-time collaborator and friend John Coxon, string and brass sections, choirs and finger bells, and chimes from the Whitechapel Bell Foundry.

    “Crazy” follows “Always Together with You,” the lead single from Everything Was Beautiful, out February 25th via Fat Possum Records. Pre-orders for the album are ongoing, and you can check out the artwork and tracklist here.

    In support of the album, Spaceman has mapped out a West Coast tour this spring. See the dates below, and pick up tickets via Ticketmaster.
