We know who Spoon's voting for in 2020.

Democratic 2020 presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg uploaded a video to Facebook in which he plays the band's "The Way We Get By" pretty effortlessly on the piano. Spoon were quick to respond, reposting the clip and writing, "So this guy can just do everyone's job, huh."   

The 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, quickly gained popularity as an openly gay Afghanistan war veteran and Rhodes scholar with strong Christian beliefs and clearly a knack for playing piano. He sat with Ellen Degeneres on Friday (April 12) to outline some of his beliefs ahead of his presidential campaign announcement.
