Sure, the British pop band scored a majority of its biggest hits a few decades back, but last year saw the release of “Paper Gods,” an album that managed to conjure the electricity of the early years with a slew of top-notch collaborators like Mark Ronson, Janelle Monae, Kiesza, Nile Rodgers and Lindsay Lohan.The group is once again on tour — minus keyboardist Nick Rhodes, who is out for a family emergency while Amanda “MNDR” Warner fills in — with a stop scheduled at the Outside Lands festival.Do you ever go to festivals as a civilian?Is it weird?How time flies when you’re having fun.Where do you get that spark?[...] if you’re talking about the general attitude — we grew up with David Bowie, who maintained an amazing artistic presence for decades.The other thing is to do with spontaneity and being open and free to let the good stuff into your life.How do you reconnect with them?Reconnecting is the right thing.Songs go through phases.If you work hard at your songwriting, you’ve got a lot of good songs.Aidin Vaziri is The San Francisco Chronicle’s pop music critic.Polo Field, Lindley Meadow and Hellman Hollow in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. www.sfoutsidelands.com
