Spoon‘s six-song set for the PBS live music series Austin City Limits is now streaming in full. The hour-long episode – which also featured fellow Austin, Texas rock band White Denim – premiered Saturday night. Spoon used their set to showcase material from their eighth and most recent LP, 2014’s They Want My Soul (“Inside Out,” “Rainy Taxi,” “Outlier,” “Do You” and “Knock Knock Knock”) along with one seductive classic, 2005’s “I Turn My Camera On.”
They Want My Soul – a follow-up to 2010’s Transference – took over four years to deliver, but Spoon have been quick to unveil new material. According to Setlist.fm, Britt Daniel and crew recently debuted a new track, “Satellite,” at a December 16th show in Albuquerque, New Mexico; the song then re-emerged during a Houston gig on December 30th – and one audience member posted Youtube footage of the stark, dreamy track, which features intricate keyboard work from new member Alex Fischel.
Spoon recently wrapped an American tour with a New Year’s Eve gig in Dallas, and they currently have four Australian dates scheduled for February. It’s unclear when the band will begin work on their next album – and whether Daniel will use “Satellite” for that band or his acclaimed side-group Divine Fits, a group that also features Fischel.
In September, Spoon drummer-producer Jim Eno told Billboard “it’s hard to say” when another LP will arrive. “I’m sure Britt and Alex will do another Divine Fits record,” he continued. “If that happens, we’re probably not going to do another Spoon record for two years, but we’ll see how it goes.”
