Watch Spoon Debut “Rent I Pay” In NPR Webcast

Spoon NPR webcast

When Spoon hinted that something mysterious named “R.I.P.” would arrive on 6/10, the internet went into speculation frenzy. But as it turns out, the band isn’t breaking up tomorrow, and they’re also not going to suddenly release a new album on us with minimal warning. The next album is actually called They Want My Soul, and it’s coming in August. “R.I.P.” actually stands for “Rent I Pay,” the album’s opening track and first single. And while the band has already debuted new ones “Rainy Taxi” and “Knock Knock Knock” in recent days, they were saving up “Rent I Pay.” Earlier this afternoon, the band played an NPR show at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge, and that’s where they debuted “Rent I Pay,” which, their Twitter informs us, is out tomorrow. The song is classic Spoon: Mean, melodic, propulsive, stripped down to its barest elements. Watch it below.

They Want My Soul is out 8/5 on Loma Vista.
