The highly anticipated new record from Spoon isn't out until January, but you can hear a cut from the record now, exclusively on All Songs Considered. "Written In Reverse" is the first single from the album, called Transference. It may be Spoon's best record yet. Also on this edition of All Songs Considered: surprising new music from chanteuse Norah Jones, the amazing hip-hop artist Brother Ali, Devendra Banhart's major label debut, Tegan and Sara, and essential music from "Weird Al" Yankovic.
