Spoon Drop Tons Of New Merch, October Bonus Track

Spoon at The Fillmore, from the HAD Archive

Despite Spoon being in the studio working on the record, the folks at the band's website certainly aren't taking it as a sign to slow down: Last week, the site delivered a massive explosion of merch on the band's behalf. The effort was spearheaded by "deluxe" digital versions of the band's first four records, that include new videos and liner notes. In addition, they've cobbled together some combos that include things like reissued postcards, posters, and t-shirts.

However, not to be ones to be associated with capitalism, the always-generous Spoon gods also put forth October's "bonus track" from the band. This time round it's an "A Capella" version of "The Ghost Of You Lingers", and here's a thought: if you thought the album version was ethereal and creepy, this takes it to a whole new level. It's essentially the vocal track from the album version, and it's a true exercise in space and reverb. Check it out below.
