Spoon Firm Up Transference Details, Release First Single

UPDATE: The band has 4 US dates in December, see below!

By now you've probably heard all about this, but just in case you were as turkey-coma'ed as we were: last week Spoon firmed up the release details of their upcoming record Transference. The disc is unquestionably our most anticipated release of 2010, so we were more than a little bit excited to hear we won't be waiting long for the new material.

The record will drop on January 19th from Merge, but even more timely is today's release of the record's first single "Written In Reverse". The track is a digital single as of today, with a 7" release to follow in January. To anyone who's been checking out the band in the past year or so, the song should be pretty familiar, as it's been a constant in the live environ. For those of you who haven't, well let's just say this: if you haven't heard Britt Daniel let loose over a pounding piano line, this is certainly your chance.

The band has also announced their first 2010 tour dates, all of which are in Europe, with promise of US dates upcoming. Yes, we are very, very excited. Bring it!
