Huh? (Intro)

Album: Sweet Heart Sweet Light (2012)
  • This is the opening track of Spiritualized's seventh album, Sweet Heart Sweet Light . Speaking with Spinner, mainman Jason Pierce explained he was originally going to call the record 'huh' as, "it just stuck with me as a title." However, he eventually decided against it as he could imagine people getting, "into some kind of Monty Python loop of people trying to ask for this record that was a question." So he "figured the best way to not call it that was to make that the sleeve." In a similar way to The White Album , "the sleeve would be what people refer to as the record."

    Pierce also felt that people miss the old 12-inch record sleeves. So rather than just moaning, "Oh, it was so much better then," he would, "make a record sleeve that worked on a 1.5-centimeter square. Something that worked on its own level as tiny as it could go and it would still be a fantastic image."
