Spoon album details, band gossip

The tracklisting and July 10th release date for Spoon's highly-anticipated sixth full-length album, Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, have already been widely reported, and SXSW attendees lucky enough to get into Spoon's showcase (with the Stooges!) got a sneak preview of several new tracks. For those less fortunate, video footage has made its way up onto YouTube.

Also during SXSW, Spoon keyboardist Eric Harvey was spotted with British sensation Amy Winehouse enough times to have some insiders questioning the status of his long-standing bachelorhood. Gimme fact or gimme fiction? It's certainly no stranger than sighting Britt Daniel backstage with Flavor Flav.

The Stooges aren't the only big name to share the marquee with Spoon this year. A series of shows and festivals leading up to the new release includes dates with The Beastie Boys, The Police, Wilco, The White Stripes and The Flaming Lips, culminating in a show in Detroit with Weird Al Yankovic.
