Indie-rockers Spoon are set to release their newest album They Want My Soul next week. It has been four years since the band’s last major release, and although the album is being released on a new label, it is shaping up to deliver classic Spoon brilliance.Love Ways

Ga Ga Ga Ga GaSpoon has persisted throughout an erratic career in the music industry. The band released a string of EPs in the 1990s that were met with various modicums of positivity. Their first release on a major label in 1998 was a hard commercial failure, and the band was quickly dropped. After signing with an indie label a few years later, Spoon erupted in popularity. The 2000 release Love Ways began a renaissance era for the band. Kill the Moonlight was released in 2002, followed by Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga in 2007. Songs from each album were featured in several TV shows and movies throughout the decade. In 2009, the popular review aggregator Metacritic ranked Spoon as the top overall artist of the decade.

They Want My SoulKill the Moonlight is the first Spoon release on Loma Vista Recordings, and features a new guitarist/keyboardist. Thankfully, the changes in production and direction seem to suit the band’s classic sound. You can listen for yourself below and enjoy the official music video for the track “Do You,” which is featured on the new album. If the rest of the album is anything like “Do You,” longtime fans of the band should expect quite an appealing experience.
