Los Angeles legends Sparks (brothers Ron and Russell Mael) have announced a new album, A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip. There are also other exciting 2020 projects in the works for the duo, including a documentary on the band directed by British auteur Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Baby Driver) and a musical film, Annette, directed by Leos Carax (Holy Motors), starring Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard, and featuring Sparks' music. Plus they have announced some new European tour dates and shared a quirky announcement video for everything. A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip is due out May 15 via BMG. While its tracklist has yet to be shared, it may feature "Please Don't Fuck Up My World," a new song the band shared in December.
