New Spoon!

A while back, Spoon put a countdown timer on their site with the ominous initials R.I.P. Many speculated that it was the title of their new album or perhaps a new song. No one suggested that it was a countdown to the dissolution of the band.

Fortunately, it wasn't the latter. It was a countdown to the song "Rent I Pay" and the announcement of the new album They Want My Soul. Now we get to hear it and watch an unofficial video at the same time. The album comes out August 5.

And the song? Well, obviously hit "play" and check it out for yourself, but it's a song that's worth the four year wait since Transference. Great beat, cool guitars, classic Spoon. I'm really looking forward to the new album.

Go see Spoon live at NXNE at Yonge-Dundas Square on June 21.
