Continuing the advance promotion of Spoon’s upcoming album, They Want My Soul, Britt Daniel performed acoustic versions of two of the songs, “Rent I Pay” and “Rainy Taxi,” on BBC Radio 6.
Talking about being a musician Daniels said:
“There was a long time where there was a lot of not-fun stuff we would do and a lot of scrounging, but I knew this was the only thing I wanted to do and I just kept pushing forward. Now there’s a little more success and it really does make things easier when you get to spend a few more bucks to record a record. You can stay in a hotel instead of a friend’s floor.”
