‘Self Effacing’ was released in February including the lyrics video and was celebrated by the Rolling Stone directly as a “song you just have to know”: “Who, if not the SPARKS, would release a bombastic song about modesty? ‘Self-Effacing’ is exactly what you expect from the Art Rock duo: great vocals, dramatic music, and pure camp… A hymn for introverts everywhere, a great start for the band that released their last album ‘Hippopotamus’ two years ago.”

Last year, SPARKS announced ‘A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip’ with the festive album track ‘Please Don’t Fuck Up My World’. The title was celebrated worldwide before its release before Christmas. Uncut described it as a “plaintive message of hope expressed in SPARKS’ own, inimitable way”. “SPARKS is back with a brand-new single that feels very current,” enthused Brooklyn Vegan. “While ‘Please Don’t Fuck Up My World’ doesn’t name any names, texts like “All that you are pursuing / please don’t fuck up my world / can’t you see what you’re doing” clearly target the head of state of your choice. Russell and Ron Mael let a children’s choir sing, so they underline things very well in their own way.”

Now, in the sixth decade of their career, SPARKS will celebrate ‘A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip’ with a short series of live data in Europe, followed by an epic world tour in 2021. This year, the much-anticipated premiere of Annette, the first English-language film by ground-breaking French director Leos Carax (Holy Motors, Pola X), written by Ron and Russell Mael and starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard. In addition, director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Baby Driver) puts the finishing touches on his long-standing Sparks documentary, which celebrates this unique band properly.
