Jason Pierce has stalled the release of his forthcoming Spiritualized album Sweet Heart Sweet Light. According to an interview with Spin the original mid-March release date has been pushed back to sometime later in the month or even early April.

Pierce also revealed a sly bit of media maneuvering. Despite the fact that advanced prints of the new album have been sent out for review purposes, Pierce says the copies sent out aren't the tried and true version of the LP. "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,” he says. “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."

Pierce says that there will be a noticeable disparity between the two works. "I think it’s quite different. 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." It seems until the record's official release, Pierce is the only one who knows what Sweet Heart Sweet Light really sounds like.
