Spoon’s album They Want My Soul debuts August 5 via Loma Vista, but fans of the band can stream the entire album through iTunes Radio. The group’s passion for albums can currently be witnessed by their Vinyl Gratification program, which gives fans who preorder They Want My Soul a white vinyl pressing of the album. The singles “Do You,” “Rent I Pay” and “Inside Out” were also featured in a 10-inch limited edition vinyl which sold out in participating record stores, and a new shipment is set for a Wednesday, July 30 release in participating record stores.
With the release of their first studio album since 2010’s Transference, the band are in full promotion and touring mode. Their trek, which starts August 1 in Chicago (Metro), will also included stops in Los Angeles (The Fairbanks Lawn of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, August 5), San Francisco (Outside Lands, August 10), Portland (Musicfest NW, August 17), NYC (Central Park,, September 10), Montreal (as special guests of Arcade Fire, Parc Jean Drapeau, August 30), and Austin (Austin City Limits Music Festival, October 5 & 12).
They Want My Soul is an excellent addition to Spoon’s impressive body of work, and although it’s really hard to single out my favorites from their new album, I am absolutely hooked on the tranquil yet seductive “Inside Out.” If you haven’t checked out the track, watch the Spoon video below:
