Spoon released a brand-new cover of David Bowie’s iconic song, “I Can’t Give Everything Away.” off Bowie’s final album, Blackstar, the Amazon Original track was released as a part of Amazon Music’s month- long [RE]DISCOVER campaign celebrating David Bowie’s 75th birthday on January 8th, 2022.
“’I Can’t Give Everything Away’ is a tune Alex and I have been playing since we learned it for an acoustic and piano show in Mexico City in 2016,” said Britt Daniel of Spoon. “It’s just a fantastic song, and as the last song on Bowie's final album it doesn't disappoint. We recorded this version live in December 2021.”
Amazon Music’s [RE]DISCOVER series showcases carefully curated artist playlists across various genres and takes listeners on a career-spanning journey of musical discovery, or re- discovery, through the featured artist’s entire body of work. Throughout January, David Bowie will be the [RE]DISCOVER Artist of the Month, spotlighted in an expertly curated [RE]DISCOVER playlist of David Bowie’s music. Spoon’s cover of “I Can’t Give Everything Away” will appear on [RE]DUX 036: David Bowie.
Spoon recently announced the forthcoming release of their tenth studio album, Lucifer On the Sofa, out February 11th, 2022 on Matador. The album was co-produced by Spoon and Mark Rankin (Adele, Queens of the Stone Age) and features contributions from Dave Fridmann and Justin Raisen. It’s the band’s purest rock ’n roll record to date. Texas-made, it is the first set of songs that the quintet has put to tape in its hometown of Austin in more than a decade and bottles the physical thrill of a band tearing up a packed room. It’s an album of intensity and intimacy, where the music’s harshest edges feel as vivid as the directions quietly murmured into the mic on the first take. According to frontman Britt Daniel, “it’s the sound of classic rock as written by a guy who never did get Eric Clapton.”
