The Austin Texas based Spoon has announced the follow up to 2010’s brilliant Transference this evening. NPR music was the first to report that They Want My Soul will be dropping relatively soon, August 5th to be exact, and it will the band’s first record not on the Merge Record Label. For the first time the band worked with outside producers on a record and that should help infuse a new sound not that there was anything wrong with their sound.
The band has been teasing something called RIP which will be revealed on June 10th. They are on tour and will be hitting Philadelphia this August at the Made in America festival after the record drops.
