LISTEN: Spoon Reveals “Rent I Pay,” Off Of New LP

By Staff on June 10, 2014

 

 

After a four-year hiatus and a couple of weeks hinting at something with the initials "R.I.P." (via socials), Spoon is back with an upcoming album, a major tour and now a new track: "Rent I Pay."

 

With a straightforward beat and driving guitar (and organ!) lines, "Rent I Pay" is a track that succeeds because of frontman Britt Daniel's lyrics and vocals—both entirely focused on the anguish and frustration of having no real control, or grasp, on your own life. Daniel is only asking for peace within the song, but all he gets are blocked desires and reminders about his debts in life.

 

Pretty fitting themes for a first single off of an album entitled They Want My Soul (out August 5th via Loma Vista).
