“Hot Thoughts finds Spoon at the peak of their considerable powers ...cementing their place in the firmament of undeniably great rock bands.”—UNCUT
“Spoon never fails to hit its mark — delivered forcefully, and with hooks for days.”—NPR
Ahead of their intimate show at London’s 100 Club this Monday February 27th, one of America’s greatest bands, Spoon, have revealed new single ‘Can I sit Next To You’. With a slick, steady-paced groove and an eerie synth filled chorus the track is the second to be taken from the band’s career defining album ‘Hot Thoughts’ (out March 17th on Matador Records).
To accompany the single, Spoon has unveiled a new video, directed by Marcel Dzama, the acclaimed contemporary artist whose previous musical collaborators have included the likes of Beck and Bob Dylan, not mention last year’s costume and stage design for the New York City Ballet’s The Most Incredible Thing. The “Can I Set Next To You” video can be seen below;
The band will also be back for their first UK tour since 2014 this June for three shows that are sure to be one of the live highlights of 2017, culminating with a show at The Forum in London on June 30th.
Mon 27th London, 100 Club (sold out)
Tues 27th MANCHESTER, Gorilla
Wed 28th GLASGOW, The Arts School
Fri 30th LONDON, The Forum
Their forthcoming new album ‘Hot Thoughts’ is already being touted as one of the albums of the year. Produced by Spoon and Dave Fridmann, they have created the bravest, most sonically inventive work of their illustrious career. Within the space of 10 captivating songs, ‘Hot Thoughts’ confirms why Spoon are one of the most critically acclaimed acts of the first decade of the new millennium.
Reuniting the band with the label that released their 1996 debut, ‘Telephono’, and following on Spoon’s streak of three consecutive US Top 10 albums—‘Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga’ (2007), ‘Transference’ (2010) and ‘They Want My Soul’ (2014)—‘Hot Thoughts’ is nothing short of epic.
Spoon are: singer/guitarist Britt Daniel, drummer Jim Eno, bassist Rob Pope and Alex Fischel on keyboards and guitar.
