See Spoon’s Shadowy ‘I Ain’t the One’ Video

Band will be on tour throughout the U.S. until late January

The members of Spoon hide in the dark as they sing “I Ain’t the One,” a chilly track off this year’s Hot Thoughts LP, in a new video for the song. Frontman Britt Daniel’s face is obscured by a grate of shadows as he sings and scenes of moving sidewalks and escalators move around his bandmates and him, playing off the concept of absence that plays through lyrics like “I ain’t the one/ So now I’m leaving you all behind me.” Filmmakers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard (Nick Cave’s 20,000 Days on Earth) made the clip.

Earlier this year, Daniel told Rolling Stone that he’d taken inspiration from Johnny Cash when he wrote the tune, making it a “mythic outsider, tough-guy kind of song,” on acoustic guitar. He rethought it after a night of drinking and smoking weed and turned it into the synthy version on the album.

The band will be tour throughout the U.S. this fall and winter. Shins will support the band at their dates in Phoenix and Morrison, Colorado. Mondo Cozmo will accompany them from October 10th to the 12th and then from the 15th to the 21st. White Reaper will be on the road with the band in January.
