In the summer, Sparks revealed that they were working in the studio on a new album. It will follow 2020’s “A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip” and the band’s soundtrack recording for the 2021 film Annette.
There is no more detailed information about the upcoming LP yet, although a press release confirms that it will be released next year.
Back in March, Edgar Wright’s documentary about the duo The Sparks Brothers won the BandLab NME Award for Best Musical Film.
Earlier this month, it was announced that a musical based on a script by Ron and Russell Maelei is currently in development. The film titled X Crucior was declared an original musical epic.
