Musical mavericks SPARKS - Californian brothers Ron and Russell Mael – will release their 22nd studio album Hippopotamus in 2017.

Described as “the smartest, most consistently evolving band in the history of rock”, and internationally acclaimed as pop pioneers, Sparks are name-checked as a major influence on musicians as varied as Morrissey, Bjork, The Ramones, Faith No More, Sonic Youth, and Nirvana.

Sparks’ music has always been innovative and instantly identifiable. Recorded in Los Angeles, ‘Hippopotamus sees them take the pop form, shake it up, and create an album that is adventurous, fresh and idiosyncratically ‘Sparks’.
