Spoon has made a comeback with their first single since 2017’s Hot Thoughts, “No Bullets Spent”. Taken right off their upcoming ‘Everything Hits At Once’ greatest hits album, the song is a classic rendition of that transports us right back to Transference-era, with a little They Want My Soul thrown in. Complete with classic riffs, soft chords, and lead singer Britt Daniel’s soulful musings, this song truly does feel like everything Spoon at once. Listen below.
“The idea of doing a best-of came to us a couple times,” lead singer Britt Daniels says. “First I wasn’t sure how I felt about it but at some point I remembered that when I got my first Cure record it was Standing On A Beach. When I got my first New Order record, it was Substance. That was how I met those bands, and I moved backwards from there but I still listen to those comps. I love a greatest hits LP when it’s done well. It can be a thing unto itself.”
‘No Bullets Spent,’ will also be available in the Spoon store and on tour as a limited edition 7”. The ‘A Series of Sneaks’-era rarity ‘Shake It Off’ will also be found on the b-side.
