New (to me) Music: Wild, by Spoon

“And the world, still so wild, called to me”

Wild, by spoon

Spoon is without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite bands.

So it stands to reason that when they start putting out singles in advance of a new album, I’m going to be all over it. “Wild”, which was released a few weeks ago brings a lot of the old familiar sound of Spoon to the table, and that’s not a bad thing.

I can’t wait for the album’s full release on February 11th!

Here’s what Rolling Stone has to say about the video:

“Directed by Ben Chappell and Brook Linder, the visual for “Wild” aims to depict the song’s celebratory venture back to a vivid and colorful reality after spending some time in the black and white haze of sullen depths.” Read the rest here.

Best Lyrics:

I looked full over all the lies and
Appealing to me, advertising
And I was living tight every night

And the world, still so wild, called to me
I was lost, I’d been kept on my knees
And the world, still so wild, called to me
