It reunites the Austin band with the label that released their 1996 debut, Telephono, and following on Spoon’s streak of three consecutive Top 10 albums — Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (2007), Transference (2010) and They Want My Soul (2014).
Hot Thoughts was co-produced by Spoon and Dave Fridmann. The opening title track is available to stream here or as an instant download with all pre-orders placed at http://smarturl.it/Spoon_Hot_Thoughts. “I Ain’t The One” was recently featured in the penultimate episode of the current season of Showtime’s Shameless.
Having recently sneak previewed Hot Thoughts material in a surprise hometown warm-up, Spoon has also confirmed a three-night release week SXSW residency for which the band will resurrect the original, classic Austin venue Emo's location, currently referred to as "The Main" on March 14-16. The band will curate a unique line up each night and will stubbornly be referring to the venue as "Eno's”.
