Austin’s most esteemed rock ambassadors, Spoon, today unleash the band’s first new song since 2017s acclaimed ‘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 (keyboards) and Gerardo Larios (guitar) add their own dimension to the band whose recent recording sessions point to, perhaps, a forthcoming new album.
‘No Bullets Spent’ joins classics from the Spoon catalogue on ‘Everything Hits at Once: The Best of Spoon’, the greatest hits compilation coming out July 26th on Matador Records.
‘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.
