Months of speculation come to an end today as details of the new Spoon album can be confirmed: Austin’s most esteemed rock ambassadors will release their ninth album, Hot Thoughts, March 17 on Matador Records.

Reuniting the band with the label that released their 1996 debut, Telephono, and following on Spoon’s streak of three consecutive Top 10 albums — Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga (2007), Transference (2010) and They Want My Soul (2014) — Hot Thoughts is nothing short of an epic. With Hot Thoughts, co-produced by Spoon and Dave Fridmann, the quartet has created the bravest, most sonically inventive work of the catalogue that has made it the most critically acclaimed act of the first decade of the new millennium (http://www.metacritic.com/feature/best-music-of-the-decade). Within the space of 10 songs, Hot Thoughts creates a musical universe of its own, with individual worlds ranging from the kaleidoscopic opening title track—available to stream here or as an instant download with all pre-orders placed at http://smarturl.it/Spoon_Hot_Thoughts — through the gargantuan stomp of “Do I Have To Talk You Into It” and ubiquitous wiry hooks of “Can I Sit Next To You” to the bittersweetness of “I Ain’t The One” (which recently received a surprise reveal in the penultimate episode of the current season of Showtime’s Shameless) and beyond.

Having recently sneak previewed Hot Thoughts material in a surprise hometown warm-up, Spoon has also confirmed a three-night release week SXSW residency for which the band will resurrect the original, classic Austin venue Emo’s location, currently referred to as “The Main” on March 14, 15 and 16. The band will curate a unique line up each night and will stubbornly be referring to the venue as “Eno’s”.
