Spoon release remix EP, get musicians to turn their track "Inside Out" inside out

Spoon really want you to know about this song they wrote called “Inside Out.” It was included in their genuinely fantastic album from last year They Want My Soul, but we didn’t even give that track a mention in our otherwise gushing review. So I’ll do it here: “Inside Out” is a sonic sidestep with crunchy drum beats, lyrics contemplating metaphysics, and a harp solo, a track whose greatness was probably obscured by a late-end career defined by other great sonic sidesteps.

Instead of getting all despondent and writing a song about it, Spoon have grabbed a metaphorical highlighter and plan to emphasize the song with a remix EP featuring reworkings by Operators, Tycho, Brian Reitzell, and Fab Moretti of The Strokes. You can check out the retro reworking by Moretti here and the Tycho version below:

The full remix EP will be available 28 April via the usual digital channels, but Spoon still reckon that the song needs more attention. So you can check out Spoon’s demo version of the track and Justin Vernon’s cover of it below, and then download the recent Song Exploder podcast, where the band deconstruct the song here.

Oh, and get along to one of their American tour dates where we’ll all be sorely disappointed if they don’t play “Inside Out.”
