Spoon’s “R.I.P.” Coming 6/10
Yesterday we reported that Spoon have signed with Universal-distributed Loma Vista Records for their eighth album, which was completed in March. The band’s manager recently told Rolling Stone that the album “coincides” with their summer tour, and since that tour starts with Primavera Sound this Saturday, you’ve gotta assume we’ll be hearing this thing soon. Last night the band quietly updated their social media profiles with the image above — SPOON R.I.P. JUNE 10. Is that a song title? An album title? Just a reflektor? The words apparently appear on billboards in Brooklyn, too, but when I search Instagram for “spoon” it’s not returning what I want. Anyway, this is all exciting if you’re a Spoon fan, and who isn’t? Check out the previously released album teaser below.
