Spacey Jane close the chapter on second album with final single ‘One Bad Day’

Spacey Jane are ushering in a new era with single One Bad Day, bookending their hugely successful sophomore album cycle. 

Spacey Jane have closed the chapter on their second album cycle with the release of final single, One Bad Day.

Opening with spacey, whirring synths and the ever-enrapturing vocals of frontman Caleb Harper, One Bad Day carries all the sonic energy of Spacey’s 2022 album Here Comes Everybody, while hinting at what’s still yet to come.

The shimmering single finds Spacey in their truest form, with all the indie rock flourishes and melodic earworm hooks we’ve come to expect from the Fremantle four-piece.

One Bad Day sees the band reflect on overwhelming feelings, and giving up on things because you can’t see the forest for the trees. “This is the last time I’ll feel like this,” Harper croons on the catchy refrain, “or at least I hope it is.” 

Reflecting on the song’s inception in a press statement, Harper said One Bad Day was written just as Here Comes Everybody was delivered, and so felt like “the perfect bookend for this album cycle.”

He continued: “We really love the song, we want to see it out in the world and so found it a place in between albums.” The album-bridger single marks Spacey Jane’s first release in nearly two years, and comes ahead of their as-yet untitled third LP.

Spacey Jane’s upcoming album is expected to arrive later this year, with the band announcing last week that the project is “about halfway recorded.”

It will serve as the follow-up to the band’s hugely successful sophomore effort, which landed six tracks in triple j’s Hottest 100 and was named among Happy Mag’s best Australian albums of 2022

“We were able to live inside the record if that makes sense,” Harper said of the album’s creation in a 2022 interview with Happy Mag. “We made more decisions about tiny details but also focused on the record as a whole.”
