Spiritualized's J Spaceman (aka Jason Pierce) directs the video for the second release from the forthcoming album Everything Was Beautiful, creative directed by Juliette Larthe.

Spiritualized’s gentle balladic track is heightened with the soothing country vocals of Nikki Lane, and bought to life with Spaceman’s music video, a collage of images featuring couples from different eras, different cultures and different genders.

The imagery is overlaid with artwork from the familiar and iconic pharmaceutical packaging motif of Spiritualized’s album design, which dates back to Mark Farrow’s artwork for the 1997 classic album Ladies and Gentlemen we are Floating in Space, and was also a visual theme overlaying the video for the track Always Together with You, released late last year, which was also creative directed by Larthe.

Everything Was Beautiful is out on February 25 (via Fat Possum) and follows 2018’s And Nothing Hurt. Together, the titles form a quote from Kurt Vonnegut’s classic novel Slaughterhouse Five: “Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.”
