Both singles that Spoon have released from their upcoming They Want My Soul have been superb, but the new track “Inside Out” might just be my favorite. It has an incredibly addictive beat and an otherworldly sound that is just beautiful. Listening on repeat for the foreseeable future.

This is certainly something nice and unexpected. In anticipation of the forthcoming Eaux Claires Music and Arts Festival, festival organizer and chairman, Justin Vernon has released this gorgeous promo video of himself covering Spoon’s excellent track, “Inside Out”. You can find all of the information that you need for the showcase at the festival’s homepage. In the meantime, let’s all hope that this isn’t a one and done sort of promo and that we’ll be getting more immaculately shot performances in the lead up to the festival.
“I knew for the first time that people were paying attention and that probably made me a lot more picky, which made the songs take longer,” Britt Daniel tells NPR. “It was the hardest album we’d done.”
“Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. ”
