Spiritualized : Hey Jane


Hey Jane is a chugging eight-minute track from the seventh album by UK space pop collective Spiritualized. After the first very radio-friendly three minutes – a peppy garage rock ramble – the song becomes more spacious, lighter and somehow more joyful. Layers of guitar and vocal build confidently until singer Jason Spaceman returns like a distorted, warbling choirmaster, leading the song in clattering rounds to a sweet, carnivalesque peak. Unexpectedly great.
