Sparks Tour 2023–which includes a pair of sold-out headline shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall on May 29 and 30–celebrates the imminent arrival of Sparks’ 26th studio album, The Girl Is Crying In Her Latte. The new project is due Friday, May 26 via Island Records – their first release on the venerable label in close to five decades.

Described by brothers Ron and Russell Mael as a record that is “as bold and uncompromising as anything we did back then, or for that matter, anytime throughout our career,” the new album follows such classic Sparks releases on Island as 1974’s landmark Kimono My House, highlighted of course by the indelible hit single, “This Town Ain’t Big Enough For Both Of Us.”
