with special guest EMA
In their first Chicago headline appearance in over four years, Spoon’s upcoming tour will bring them downtown to The Chicago Theatre on September 16, 2014. Showtime is 7:30 and the special guest will be EMA.
Spoon will release their long awaited eighth offering, They Want My Soul, on August 5 via Loma Vista Recordings. Preorders for the album-lauded by NPR as “unmistakably a Spoon record, with…fantastically infectious grooves and melodies” — are live now at iTunes and Amazon. All preorders placed through iTunes and www.spoontheband.com come with an instant download of the album’s lead-off track “Rent I Pay.”
The band has also filmed an unofficial video for They Want My Soul’s “Rent I Pay.” This initial visual offering can be viewed at YouTube.
Britt Daniel and Jim Eno recently talked with Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton for NPR’s All Songs Considered about the recording process behind the record and its sonic elements. The All Songs Considered segment is currently streaming here.
