"The Hardest Cut" is the first taster of Spoon's new album, and was also the first track written for the record, co-written by frontman Britt Daniel and Alex Fischel.

Daniel says of the song, "I spent a lot of 2018 and 2019 listening to ZZ Top."

The new album is co-produced by Spoon and Mark Rankin (Adele, Queens of the Stone Age), and includes contributions from Dave Fridmann and Justin Raisen.

Daniel adds of the album, "It’s the sound of classic rock as written by a guy who never did get Eric Clapton."

Lucifer on the Sofa will follow Spoon's 2017 album Hot Thoughts. In 2019 they released a greatest hits album titled Everything Hits At Once: The Best of Spoon, and last year they started their Slay on Cue reissue campaign with All the Weird Kids Up Front (Mas Rolas Chidas).
