As we continue to wait for official word of their new album beyond the simple fact that it’s coming out this summer, Spoon has shared its second trailer related to the record. Available below, it’s unclear whether the “They Want My Soul” reference in the video’s description is a song title or a nod to the band’s upcoming appearance at L.A.’s Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Either way, the clip makes it sound like some of the dance elements from Britt Daniel’s Divine Fits project may have rubbed off on Spoon’s sessions with drummer/producer Jim Eno.

“We’ve been hanging out at [Eno's studio] a lot in the past couple months and we’re still in the writing stages,” the band explained in a newsletter entry last May. “But the shit is sounding good.”

The group wrote that they were “one week away from a finished album” in March, so we wouldn’t be surprised if this release ends up being a sudden one. Here’s what we know so far, including several months of tour dates…
