Spoon Tease New Album With Short, Noisy Video
Frontman Britt Daniel previously said the LP would be more "soulful"
As we noted back in May, Spoon revealed they were working on a new album, sharing a bunch of Spoon-sounding song titles like “The Rent I Pay,” “Naff Bag,” “Millionaires,” and “Fresh From Your Pages.” Now, as Stereogum reports, the Austin rockers are less than a week away from finishing the follow-up to 2010’s Transference and they’ve shared a 26-second video preview of one of the new tracks. It’s an acoustic-based mid-tempo cut interspersed with abrasive guitar hits that nearly drown out Britt Daniel’s vocals. Almost a year ago, he told SPIN’s Marc Hogan that the new songs had “more soul” and R&B to them, though we’d hardly place this snippet into either of those genres. Check it out above and stay tuned for more news on Spoon’s first LP in four years.
