What, another rather ‘anti-Christmas’ song, already?
Well, yes, sorta. The fact is that an email arrived in my warzone of an inbox of Wednesday evening, for a new single from Sparks. So ahead of its release on December 4, on Lil’ Beethoven records, how could I not share it with you?
As you would expect from the Sparks, wonderful high vocals, impressive synths and – and that Mael humour (but of course!). And a musical twist, but in the middle…
And as a bonus, from 1974’s Kimono My House album ‘Thank God It’s Not Christmas’
Franz Ferdinand and Sparks have teamed up for an album together as FFS, which will be released on June 8.
