Finally, We Can Listen to the Studio Version of Spoon’s ‘Rent I Pay’
As you may already know, Spoon have been teasing the s— out of their fans with tiny details on their upcoming album, ‘They Want My Soul.’ They’ve released song snippets and album trailers (when did trailers for albums become a thing, by the way?) and a strange photo.
Well, they finally gave us an entire song to listen to. The track, ‘Rent I Pay,’ is a mid-tempo chugger, pushed along by the dense orchestration Spoon is known for, along with the massive, booming drums that producer Dave Fridmann is known for.
Give it a listen:
Fridmann is most well-known for making the Flaming Lips‘ records sound so loud and impressive. Now he’s brought some fresh input to a band that hasn’t, until this album, ever worked with an outside producer.
The new album comes out Aug. 5, and those who pre-order it through iTunes, Amazon or the band’s web store get a download of ‘Rent I Pay’ now. The link above plays the song through Spotify, but in case you don’t have the program, here’s the song with an unofficial video.
