In the lead up to their forthcoming new album Lucifer On the Sofa, out February 11 (Matador Records / Remote Control), Spoon share ‘Wild’, a celebratory and anthemic song about finding one’s way from cashed out depths back into a vivid world full of colour and life. ‘Wild’ is the second track that Spoon have revealed off of Lucifer On the Sofa. Like ‘The Hardest Cut’ before it, the song captures the sound of a band cracking things open and letting it all spill out onstage.
The video for ‘Wild’ was directed by Ben Chappell and Brook Linder, who notes “we were mid putting this video together and my friend Ben asked ‘Is Spoon the best band?’ Yes. Yep. Probably. There’s always something unexpected in the familiar with Spoon. They are mythic to me somehow, and ‘WILD’ needed to feel like a myth, or at least illustrate the myth-making process in some odd way. We used the old ways -crude in-camera techniques -to hit this uncanny western film note.Britt is the quintessential western hero. Had a blast 10/10 would do again.”
