Spoon have shared the title track from their recently announced album Hot Thoughts. Check it out below. The album is out March 17 via Matador. The LP’s 10 tracks were co-produced by Spoon and Dave Fridmann. The band has also announced a three-night residency in Austin during the week of SXSW, which also happens to be the week of the album’s release. “The band will resurrect the original, classic Austin venue Emo's location, currently referred to as ‘The Main’ on March 14, 15 and 16,” a press release reads. “The band will curate a unique line up each night and will stubbornly be referring to the venue as ‘Eno’s.’”

CocoRosie have shared a new anti-Trump protest song, “Smoke ‘em Out,” featuring ANOHNI. In addition to the track, they’ve shared a statement, explaining that the song is intended “to inspire the weary-disappointed hearts of so many crest-fallen citizens.” They also reveal that they’ve begun work on their next album (the follow-up to 2015’s Heartache City). Hear “Smoke ‘em Out,” and read the statement below.
Along with “Smoke ‘em Out,” the band have shared a poem, written by Bianca Casady. It “digs deeper into the subtext of the lyrics exploring the unending end of time ambiance and the idea that ‘the future is female,’ and a very necessary force to be reckoned with.” Scroll down for the poem.
Today, we share a new song to inspire the weary-disappointed hearts of so many crest-fallen citizens. We just started working on a new album, but “Smoke ‘em Out” begged to be turned loose on the world now, as a means of participation during these turbulent yet invigorating times. Joined on guest vocals by our fellow Future Feminist ANOHNI, “Smoke ‘em Out” welcomes the new character who will be occupying the White House with a mob of women and children armed with forks and knives. In the wake of this un-natural disaster, we feel a call to rise, shout, and burn the house down. Included is a poem we have written as a kind of channeling which digs deeper into the subtext of the lyrics exploring the unending end of time ambiance and the idea that “the future is female” and a very necessary force to be reckoned with.
