Spoon are releasing their first greatest hits record, Everything Hits At Once: The Best of Spoon, on July 26 via Matador. The 13-song compilation ends with a brand new song, “No Bullets Spent,” which the band previously shared a lyric video for (it was one of our Songs of the Week). Last night Spoon stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform “No Bullets Spent” for the broadcast show. Then there was a web-exclusive live-streamed greatest hits set featuring six additional songs: “Inside Out,” “I Turn My Camera On,” “Don’t You Evah,” “Do You,” “The Underdog,” and “Rent I Pay.” Watch it all below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

There are two album covers for Everything Hits At Once, a digital one featuring a tambourine and a physical one featuring a black & white photo of a frontman Britt Daniel, out of focus. “No Bullets Spent” is also being released as a limited edition 7-inch. The B-side will be “Shake It Off,” a rarity from the A Series of Sneaks era. The band’s last album was Hot Thoughts, released in 2017 via Matador.

“The idea of doing a best-of came to us a couple times,” said Daniel in a previous press release announcing Everything Hits At Once. “First I wasn’t sure how I felt about it but at some point I remembered that when I got my first Cure record it was Standing on a Beach. When I got my first New Order record, it was Substance. That was how I met those bands, and I moved backwards from there but I still listen to those comps. I love a greatest hits LP when it’s done well. It can be a thing unto itself.”

In the press release Daniel admitted it was challenging narrowing down the band’s best songs to one best of album. “Honestly, it was a struggle,” he said. “I was listening to the old records and jotting down the songs-if you wanna turn the volume up, that’s a good sign. The list really got whittled down, so these are the best. ‘I Summon You’ was never a huge song, wasn’t for the radio, but it had to be on there. It’s one of the best things we’ve done. I wanted to represent Transference, even though it’s not really a ‘hit’ type of album-‘Got Nuffin’ was the closest thing. It did get to a point where I started feeling like, ‘We gotta represent this album in some way, we’ve gotta represent this change in some way.’ ‘Everything Hits at Once’ was a turning point for us-a minimal new wave soul type of rock song.’”

Summing up the album, Daniel said: “It’s a small collection trying to cover a lot of years, but I hope it does what The Singles record by the Pretenders or Hot Rocks [by The Rolling Stones] did for me-cover a lot of ground and then if you want to find out more, you can find out more.”
