Out digitally on June 13, Memory Dust features three new Spoon recordings – the original songs “Sugar Babies” and “Silver Girl,” plus a cover of Bo Diddley’s “She’s Fine, She’s Mine.”

These aren’t B-sides. The recordings began during sessions for Spoon’s Grammy-nominated album Lucifer on the Sofa but were left unfinished. Following the record’s release and at the tail end of a year-plus of intense touring, the band came back to the sketches with renewed energy and fresh perspective. The completed tracks retain a touch of Lucifer’s character – rock ’n roll music, played in real-time – but stretch out hypnotically. Listen to “Sugar Babies” BELOW:

In June, Spoon will travel to Europe for dates supporting The Black Keys in the UK, France, and Germany. In August, the band will join Weezer in the US for a number of west coast shows. Find a complete itinerary below.

Spoon plays the following UK dates.

Tues 20th London, Islington Assembly Hall SOLD-OUT
Weds 21st London, The O2*
Thur 22nd Manchester, AO Arena*
Sat 24th Glasgow, OVO Hydro*

*Supporting The Black Keys

Lucifer on the Sofa is Spoon’s 10th album and its purest rock and roll record to date. Texas-made, it is the first set of songs that the quintet has put to tape in its hometown of Austin in more than a decade. The album has since swept 2022 year-end lists and returned the band to No. 1 on Billboard’s AAA chart for the first time in five years.
