Sparks are celebrating their post-millennial renaissance with the 21st Century Sparks collection of deluxe reissues, to be released by BMG on CD and vinyl later this spring. Balls (2000), Lil’ Beethoven (2002), and Hello Young Lovers (2006) arrive on Friday, April 29; Exotic Creatures Of The Deep (2008) and The Seduction Of Ingmar Bergman (2009) follow on Friday, May 27. Pre-orders are available now HERE.
All five releases – a number of which have been out of print for years and much sought after by Sparks collectors – have been specially remastered for the 21st Century Sparks collection, with an array of bonus material – much of it previously unreleased – featured on all (excluding 2009’s ambitious radio musical, The Seduction Of Ingmar Bergman). Sparks’ two most recent releases – Hippopotamus (2017) and A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip (2020) – complete the collection and are both available now.
Sparks are about to begin an epic world tour, including the biggest North American run of their remarkable career. North American dates – which began last month with a pair of triumphant hometown shows at Los Angeles, CA’s Walt Disney Concert Hall – continue through early April, followed by eagerly awaited shows in the UK and Europe. Additional dates will be announced. For complete details and ticket availability, please visit allsparks.com.
