After 20 years and with a new album set to launch, the band’s frontman talks us through seven key Spoon tracks. Spoon come of age this year.
To mark turning 21, they return next month with their eighth album, They Want My Soul, another tour de force of stripped-down, melodic, leftfield music. You might call it rock’n’roll, but that wouldn’t be quite right; you might call it indie, but that wouldn’t be right, either. Spoon sound like nothing so much as themselves. They Want My Soul is their first record since 2010’s Transference, and to mark the occasion, frontman Britt Daniel sat down on a visit to London to run through some of the songs that have defined Spoon across the course of their career.
