Spoon Streams New Song, Bumps Up Release + Reveals Cover!


As you may recall late last week we told you the news about the new Spoon album to be released early next year on Merge. Well things have already changed since then and the band has bumped up the release date of their seventh album Transference to January 19th. Eager Spoon fans still have a month and a  half to wait but I guess that one week less will take the edge off of things. The very retro looking photography artwork for the record was revealed on Merge yesterday. The group is also streaming another new song called “In Reverse” via the label’s website which you can also purchase starting today. The 11-track album was produced by the band and does not stray far from the classic Spoon twang and melodies. 2010 is going to be a big year for Spoon. Can’t you feel it?

Spoon Recording Follow Up to ‘Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga’

It has been already two years since we saw the release of the most critically acclaimed Spoon album ‘Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga.’ Yes it is hard to believe that it has really been that long, but Britt Daniel and the boys have announced they are heading back into the studio this summer to record another album. This is of course great news to Spoon fans, or indie fans in general. No doubt the band will keep on the path of genius their last few records have provided. When not in the studio this summer, Spoon will be playing a small (and I mean small!) handful of shows with bands such as The Atlas Sound and Low. I’m not sure about you, but I can’t wait to hear the new Spoon tracks. Most likely the album will be released early next year.
