You can listen to the first single, "Written in Reverse," from Spoon's forthcoming album "Transference" here:
The All Songs Considered guy has rave reviews for the album, which NPR received an advance copy of, saying it might be the band's "best yet." If this song is any indication of the record's quality as a whole, consider me a little more than excited.
