SPARKS RELEASE "ALL THAT – LIVE IN ISOLATION" VIDEO
Saxophone, handclaps and acoustic guitar atypically open"‘All That," the first track on Sparks’ new album, A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip. The  song is “a commanding and catchy anthem whose initial influx of horns and echoey chants foreshadows its peppy core,” (Popmatters), yet its pure power-pop fizz” (LineOfBestFit) belies the lyrics’ touching poignancy.

All that we’ve done
We've lost, we've won
All that, all that and more
All that we've seen
We’ve heard, we've dreamed
All that, all that and more

In this video, filmed in lockdown, Ron and Russell Mael are accompanied by members of their band - Alex Casnoff, Eli Pearl, Evan Weiss and Stevie Nistor.

A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip was released digitally on May 15 to universal acclaim. This extraordinary record will be released on CD, vinyl and cassette on July 3.

“With A STEADY DRIP, DRIP, DRIP, Sparks have drawn on the many styles and many great moments in a multi-faceted career that began in their native Los Angeles in 1967, while retaining the unique identity. Whatever style they embrace, and they have embraced most – pop, rock, New Wave, synth-pop, disco, dance, electro, orchestral, opera – they always remain ineffably, irrefutably, inescapably, undeniably Sparks.”
-LouderThanWar

“No band should by-rights sound as sharp, melodic and funny more than 50 years into their career.
But Sparks are no ordinary band.”
