Spoon has announced a new album called Lucifer on the Sofa.
The group’s tenth studio effort will arrive February 11, 2022. As frontman Britt Daniel explains, Lucifer will be a more straight-rock record compared to the last Spoon album, 2017’s dance and electronic-oriented Hot Thoughts.
“I liked where we’d gone on Hot Thoughts — it had a specific style and it covered new ground for us — but we kept noticing on the road that the live versions of the songs were beating the album versions,” Daniel says in a statement. “And it got us thinking: The best rock music is not about dialing in the right patches and triggering samples. It’s about what happens in a room.”
The resulting sound of Lucifer, Daniel shares, is “classic rock as written by a guy who never did get Eric Clapton.”
Our first preview of said sound is the lead single “The Hardest Cut,” which is available now for digital download.
Here’s the Lucifer on the Sofa track list:
“The Hardest Cut”
