Spoon announce Adrian Sherwood rework of ‘Lucifer On The Sofa’ album

'Lucifer On The Moon (Spoon vs. On-U Sound)' is released on Friday (November 4)

Spoon have shared details of Adrian Sherwood‘s full reimagining of their latest album, ‘Lucifer On The Sofa‘, and previewed it with the reworked ‘The Devil & Mister Jones’.

The Texan band have let the On-U Sound Records founder and UK dub icon rethink their 10th album, which was released in February, as an “anti-gravity companion” to the original. ‘Lucifer On The Moon (Spoon vs. On-U Sound)’ will be released on Friday (November 4).

Sherwood has twisted and rebuilt the rhythms of the original album for a freshly reimagined version. On ‘The Devil & Mr. Jones’ rework he edits the song’s original pace to a half-time groove.

According to press material, Sherwood “supplied extensive additional instrumentation via On-U’s extended family of session players, including bassist Doug Wimbish and drummer Keith LeBlanc (both of whom performed in Sugarhill Records’ early ’80s in-house rhythm section).

“He dug deep into the album’s multi-tracks, surfacing forgotten details and elements not present in the final album mixes. The result airlifts Spoon’s trademark melodies into lush alien terrain, replete with vibrant echo and rumbling low-end.”

The first taste of Sherwood’s reconstruction is ‘The Devil & Mister Jones’, which you can stream below now.
