Spoon – “Do You”

By Chris DeVille / July 1, 2014

We’ve already heard “Rent I Pay” and live versions of two other songs, but the first official single from Spoon’s They Want My Soul is “Do You.” In contrast with the swaggering, stomping “Rent I Pay,” this is a breezy, wistful bit of pop-rock that wrings maximum emotional effect out of major-seventh chords and treats the human voice as a malleable instrument. The band premiered “Do You” on SiriusXMU yesterday, and now it’s available for purchase on iTunes, or you can stream it below.

They Want My Soul is out 8/5 on Loma Vista. Pre-order it here.
