Watch Britt Daniel Play Spoon Rarity “The Two Sides Of Monsieur Valentine” On Nicole Atkins’ Album Release Livestream
Nicole Atkins released a new album, Italian Ice, on Friday, and last night she hosted an album release livestream that featured performances by Dean Ween, Chris Isaak, Becca Mancari, and more. Spoon frontman Britt Daniel was also on-hand to play a band rarity, “The Two Sides Of Monsieur Valentine,” a deep cut from their 2005 album Gimme Fiction. The group performed it a bunch around the album’s release, but haven’t performed it since 2015.
Daniel prefaced the performance with a glowing endorsement for Atkins’ new album. “I love this record, I think a lot of people are going to love it,” he said. “If any of you out there haven’t heard it yet, you’re silly. You need to go buy it right now, you need to find yourself a copy, you need to turn on your machine and open up your ears and check this thing out.”
