This coming Saturday, Jan. 8, marks the 75th birthday of the late, irreplaceable David Bowie — and long-running indie band Spoon saw fit to honor Bowie’s legacy with a cover of the final song on his final album, 2016’s Blackstar.

“I Can’t Give Everything Away” was Blackstar‘s third single, and was officially released as a single after Bowie’s passing.

The Spoon cover is available to stream via Amazon Music:

Said Spoon main man Britt Daniel:

“’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.”

Spoon, meanwhile, is preparing to release a new album, Lucifer on the Sofa, on Feb. 11 — click here to preview it.

“I spent a lot of 2018 and 2019 listening to ZZ Top,” said Daniel in a statement regarding lead single “The Hardest Cut” and its bluesy-rock stomp.

Lucifer on the Sofa was co-produced by Mark Rankin (Adele, Queens of the Stone Age). Guest contributions come from Dave Fridmann and Justin Raisen. Click here to pre-order the album from our Rock Cellar Store.
