Spoon have released "My Babe" as the new single from this year's excellent Lucifer on the Sofa. The video for it was directed by Jamie-James Medina and stars Brad Leland, who you may know as Buddy Garrity on Friday Night Lights. It's based on a short-lived '70s variety show starring music producer “Cowboy” Jack Clement, and you can watch that at Spoon's Facebook.

They've also handed "My Babe" over to dub maestro Adrian Sherwood, who delivers a very cool "reconstruction" of the song, complete with echoey drums, deep sea bass and lots of flutes. Listen to that below.

Spoon will be back on tour soon, with headline dates in July, and then the Lights Camera Factions tour with Interpol and The Goon Sax. That includes a show at Asbury Park's Stone Pony Summer Stage on August 25. All dates are listed below.
