Spoon share David Bowie cover in honor of the late icon's 75th birthday [LISTEN]

David Bowie would have turned 75 on January 8, 2022 - and in honor of The Starman's birthday - Amazon Music has launched the month-long [RE]DISCOVER campaign celebrating his amazing catalog of music. 


One of the artists involved in the campaign is Spoon - who have revealed their contribution - a cover of the song “I Can’t Give Everything Away” from Bowie's final album Blackstar.  


Spoon frontman Britt Daniel said of the cover - “‘I Can’t Give Everything Away’ is a tune Alex and I have been playing since we learned it for an acoustic and piano show in Mexico City in 2016.  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.”
