Getting Spooky With Spoon

Play associated audio

Spoon's new album, They Want My Soul, is its first in four years — a long break for a band known to keep a relentless schedule. And so, singer Britt Daniel says, Spoon's members were hoping to feel refreshed when they gathered at a recording studio in upstate New York. But there were bad omens: punishing weather, a visit from the police and, one night, a streak of blood in the snow outside the studio.

Daniel says the horror-movie atmosphere is palpable in some of the tracks, but so is the band's joy and gratitude to be playing together again. Hear more at the audio link.
