Did Spoon Tease Their Next Album Cover?
It’s been about two and a half years since we got new music from Spoon, but it’s possible that wait could end soon. Today (Dec. 13), they posted a picture that may or may not be their next album cover.
On Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, the band posted a picture of a skull and also changed it to their profile picture on all three platforms. There was no accompanying caption or hashtag, but we’ve seen numerous times over the years where acts tease future releases with what becomes the cover artwork.

Spoon even joked about these types of hints when they were prepping their last full-length, 2014’s They Want My Soul. The group posted an image of the words “Spoon R.I.P. June 10” against a black background. What arrived was not an announcement of their breakup, but rather a stream of a song called “Rent I Pay.”
Even though we haven’t had new music from Spoon since last year’s EP of remixes for “Inside Out,” frontman Britt Daniel has kept himself active with a couple of covers. A year ago, he recorded Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Run Through the Jungle” for the FX series Fargo, and back in January, he paid tribute to David Bowie with an acoustic take of “Never Let Me Down” only a couple of days after Bowie’s death. “I was just saying last week isn’t it amazing how Bowie is still with us and we get another album from him?” Daniel said in a statement. “No other artist has meant as much to me personally or inspired my own songs as much. What a spirit. What an inspiration. What a shining example of the beauty that humanity can create. Bless him.”
