Sparks talk Hippopotamus, Edith Piaf

Though they've been busy with film projects and a collaborative LP with Franz Ferdinand, there hasn't been a new Sparks album since 2008. That ends with the upcoming Hippopotamus, a collection of unique, quirky, and imaginative pop songs that challenge their legendary catalog as much as celebrate all of the reasons we love them. Ron & Russell Mael spoke with Kyle Meredith about the record, and backstories on a pair of it's songs.

You can listen to the interview above and then check out "Edit Piaf (Said It Better Than Me)" below!

Kyle is the WFPK Music Director. Email Kyle at kmeredith@lpm.org
