Spoon have announced the release of their ‘Memory Dust’ EP out June 13 and have dropped a new song ‘Sugar Babies’.
‘Memory Dust’ features three new Spoon recordings – the original songs ‘Sugar Babies’ and ‘Silver Girl,’ plus a cover of Bo Diddley’s ‘She’s Fine, She’s Mine.’
The recording of the new songs on the ‘Memory Dust’ EP began during sessions for Spoon’s Grammy- nominated album, ‘Lucifer on the Sofa’, but were left unfinished. Following the record’s release and at the tail end of a year-plus of intense touring, the band came back to the sketches with renewed energy and fresh perspective. The completed tracks retain a touch of Lucifer’s character – rock ’n roll music, played in real-time – but stretch out hypnotically.
‘Lucifer on the Sofa’ is Spoon’s 10th album and its purest rock and roll record to date. Texas-made, it is the first set of songs that the quintet has put to tape in its hometown of Austin in more than a decade. The album has since swept 2022 year-end lists and returned the band to No. 1 on Billboard’s AAA chart for the first time in five years.
