Austin’s rockers, Spoon, have released the band’s first new song since 2017’s acclaimed Hot Thoughts. ‘No Bullets Spent’ has Spoon’s signature sound stamped on the track immediately while silmultanesouly taking things in a new direction. It’s lazy, lounge-funk, full of warmth and almost that Beta Band fuzz that’s so attractive
‘No Bullets Spent’ is taken from the upcoming Everything Hits at Once: The Best of Spoon, the greatest hits compilation coming out July 26th on Matador Records.
“The idea of doing a best-of came to us a couple times,” Britt Daniel says. “First I wasn’t sure how I felt about it but at some point I remembered that when I got my first Cure record it was Standing on a Beach. When I got my first New Order record, it was Substance. That was how I met those bands, and I moved backwards from there but I still listen to those comps. I love a greatest hits LP when it’s done well. It can be a thing unto itself.”
‘No Bullets Spent’ will also be available as a limited edition 7”, limited to a small pressing worldwide and sold exclusively via the Matador and Spoon webstores and on tour with the band this summer.
