Spoon Shares New Single, “No Bullets Spent”

Spoon unleashed the band’s first new song since 2017’s Hot Thoughts. “No Bullets Spent” showcases Spoon in full creative forward momentum, with its staccato rhythms and spooky film-noir guitar.  The inimitable vocals of magnetic frontman Britt Daniel kicking off at the first note, Spoon’s signature is stamped on the track immediately while another level is achieved in Daniels’ seemingly infinite hot streak as a songwriter.  Blending with the percussion wizardry of Spoon co-founder Jim Eno, the song is propelled from the doors of his own Public Hi Fi studio in Austin, TX and is produced by Mark Rankin. Alex Fischel (keyboard) and Gerardo Larios (guitar) add their own dimension to the band whose recent recording sessions point to, possibly a new full-length album.  

“No Bullets Spent” joins classics from the Spoon catalog on Everything Hits at Once: The Best of Spoon (Matador Records), the greatest hits compilation dropping July 26th. “No Bullets Spent” will also be available as a limited edition 7”, with the A Series of Sneaks era rarity “Shake It Off” on the B-side.  Limited to a small pressing worldwide, the 7” will be sold exclusively via the Matador and Spoon webstores and on tour with the band this summer.  The album’s tracklist (complaints about what songs are missing can be directed to the Twitter ether) and Spoon’s full list of summer tour dates can be found below the physical and digital artwork, and the Rob Sheffield-penned bio.

Spoon also hits the road with Beck and Cage The Elephant. Tour dates are listed below.
