Spoon released a new album, Lucifer on the Sofa, last week via Matador. Last night they were the musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where they performed the album’s first single, “The Hardest Cut,” live on the air. They also performed three additional songs as web-exclusives: recent single “Wild,” “Small Stakes” from 2002’s Kill The Moonlight, and “Inside Out” from 2014’s They Want My Soul. Watch all the performances below.

Read our rave review of Lucifer on the Sofa.

Previously the band shared the album’s first two singles: “The Hardest Cut” (which was one of our Songs of the Week) and the U2-esque “Wild” (which was also one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared the album’s third and final pre-release single, “My Babe,” as well as a video of the band performing the song live from The Teragram in Los Angeles. When the album was released, album cut “Sattelite” also made our Songs of the Week list.

Spoon co-produced the album with Mark Rankin (Adele, Queens of the Stone Age) and it also features contributions from Dave Fridmann and Justin Raisen. It’s the first time in more than a decade that Spoon has recorded an album in their hometown of Austin, Texas. A press release promises “it’s the band’s purest rock ’n roll record to date.”

Frontman Britt Daniel had this to say about the album in a press release: “It’s the sound of classic rock as written by a guy who never did get Eric Clapton.”
