Spoon share first new album in five years ‘Lucifer on the Sofa’

Austin rockers Spoon are back with their first new album in five years, Lucifer on the Sofa.

Spoon frontman Britt Daniel sat with our very own Lana Gay to talk about the album. He talks about why Lucifer on the Sofa took long to release, co-writing “Wild” with Jack Antonoff, and more.

All ten songs on Lucifer on the Sofa were recorded in Spoon’s hometown Austin, Texas. The album sees Spoon channeling their live energy into the album. It’s an intense, yet intimate collection, bottling the physical thrill of a band ripping through a performance.

“It’s the sound of classic rock as written by a guy who never did get Eric Clapton,” frontman Britt Daniel explains.

Spoon and Mark Rankin (Adele, Queens of the Stone Age) co-produced the album. The LP also boasts contributions from Dave Fridmann and Justin Raisen. Edel Rodriguez created the captivating artwork.

Lucifer On The Sofa features previously released singles “My Babe,” “Wild,” and “The Hardest Cut.”

Serving as the follow-up to 2017’s Hot Thoughts, Spoon were in the middle of recording the album at the beginning of the pandemic.

“I liked where we’d gone on Hot Thoughts – it had a specific style and it covered new ground for us – but we kept noticing on the road that the live versions of the songs were beating the album versions,” Daniel explains. “And it got us thinking: The best rock music is not about dialing in the right patches and triggering samples. It’s about what happens in a room.”
