Stream: Spoon’s 10th anniversary reissue of Gimme Fiction

on December 09, 2015, 3:45pm

On December 11th, Spoon will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their landmark fifth studio album, Gimme Fictionwith a new deluxe reissue via Merge Records. Today, NPR’s All Things Considered is streaming the release with a fun addendum: They’ve got frontman Britt Daniel to assist host Robin Hilton with a track-by-track analysis.

So, as you listen to the newly remastered album, courtesy of Howie Weinberg, you can read Daniel’s process and thinking behind each song and its accompanying demo. He gets pretty deep with Hilton, waxing nostalgic about past loves, former vices, even his thoughts on the apocalypse. It’s really an ideal escape into the mind of the songwriter.

Catch it all here, or listen to the demo version of “Was It You?” below.

For the rest of the goodies — namely, more demos, exclusive photos, and a thorough oral history — you’ll have to pick up the release next week. Pre-orders are now ongoing via Merge and Spoon’s website store, where you can also buy packages including a re-issued T-shirt from the Gimme Fiction era and a tote bag. Find the LP tracklist below.
