Spoon have released a new song, “My Babe,” from their upcoming album, Lucifer on the Sofa, set to arrive Feb. 11 via Matador Records.
“My Babe” begins as a practically wistful ballad, but the song follows its plucky lead acoustic riff to a far punchier place that feels perfect for either an arena or a garage: “Oh, I would get locked up/Hold my breath, sing my heart out/Beat my chest for my babe,” wails Britt Daniel. “Let our hearts beat in time/Let the love go on and on now/My babe.”
To accompany the studio version of the song, Spoon also shared a live performance of “My Babe” taken from a recent gig at the Teragram in Los Angeles.
KBCO presents Spoon at Mission Ballroom May 24th.
