We’ve already heard a bunch of news about Divine Fits, the new group that Spoon frontman Britt Daniel has formed alongside Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs co-leader Dan Boeckner and the New Bomb Turks’ Sam Brown. And now Daniel says that he’s recording with yet another group. This one is called Spl:t S:ngle, and its other members are Telekinesis/Verbow bassist Jason Narducy and Superchunk/Mountain Goats drummer Jon Wurster.
As Pitchfork points out, Daniel recently talked a bit about his new band in an Exclaim! interview. Apparently, the new band has already recorded 13 songs, and Daniel won’t be the frontman. Narducy wrote and sang all the songs.
Daniel also stresses that he isn’t done with Spoon, and he has at least a few ideas in mind for his main band. He says, “I do have some Spoon songs in the works,” and he also says that he’s asked the other members of the band to come up with some music for him to sing over: “I just sort of suggested it — I don’t know if they’ll do it. I’ve also come up with a few things. But I’ll finish up with this, and we’ll get back together again.”
Meanwhile, Divine Fits’ album A Thing Called The Divine Fits is out 8/28 on Merge.
