Drummer/producer Jim Eno is halfway through mixing a new Spoon album in Buffalo, NY, with Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips), according to Consequence of Sound.

The album will be the group’s eighth studio album and the followup to 2010’s Transference.

Recording began this past spring at Eno’s Public Hi-Fi Studios in Austin, TX, Consequence of Sound reports, and so far the group has recorded at least ten songs: “The Rent I Pay,” “Naff Bag,” “Millionaires,” “Let Me Be Mine,” “Modern Girls,” “I Ain’t the One,” “Fresh From Your Pages,” “Give Me It,” “They Want My Soul”, and an untitled song.

So there could be a new Spoon album in 2014. Yes!
