The Hold Steady – “Spinners” + Acoustic “The Only Thing,” “Almost Everything”

By Scott Lapatine / February 7, 2014 - 8:04 pm

Next month, Brooklyn’s the Hold Steady release Teeth Dreams, their sixth album and first for new label Washington Square. We saw the band discuss it a bit in that album trailer and heard the slick rock sound of first single “I Hope This Whole Thing Didn’t Frighten You.” Now we’ve got another taste via “Spinners,” both the album version and an acoustic take performed by Craig Finn, Tad Kubler, and new-ish guitarist Steve Selvidge for Pittsburgh’s WYEP earlier this week. That radio session also features Teeth Dreams‘ “The Only Thing” at 14:09 and “Almost Everything” at 27:02 (“Spinners” is at 00:35). There’s also some Q&A and, at 09:35, “The Sweet Part Of The City” (from 2010’s Heaven Is Whenever). Listen to all this new Hold Steady music below.

The band have announced some spring tour dates in the UK and North America, but first they’ll play the second of two “10th anniversary shows” tonight in Harrisburg, PA.

Teeth Dreams is out 3/25 via Washington Square. You can pre-order in a bunch of formats here.
