Spoon Share Their Version of David Bowie’s “I Can’t Give Everything Away”
The cover is in honor of Bowie’s birthday on January 8.
Spoon is readying the release of their tenth studio album Lucifer on the Sofa, which is out February 11. But today, they’ve got an unrelated treat for us. They’ve shared a cover of David Bowie‘s “I Can’t Give Everything Away” as part of the celebration for the late icon’s upcoming birthday on January 8. The cover is lined with a little bit of jazz and boss nova influence, as opposed to the synthy, sci-fi rock original from 2016’s Blackstar.
“’I Can’t Give Everything Away’ is a tune Alex [Fischel] and I have been playing since we learned it for an acoustic and piano show in Mexico City in 2016,” Spoon’s Britt Daniel said in a press statement. “It’s just a fantastic song, and as the last song on Bowie’s final album it doesn’t disappoint. We recorded this version live in December 2021.”
