It's been quite a busy couple of years for the brother duo. They released A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip in 2020, wrote and created the soundtrack for last year's musical film Annette, and were also the focus of Edgar Wright's The Sparks Brothers documentary in 2021. This afternoon (4 July) Ron and Russell Mael shared a new update on Instagram, revealing that they've been in the studio working on a new album.

They wrote, "Studio update. #newsparksalbum."

Last year's Annette musical film written by Sparks saw Adam Driver make history by becoming the first actor to sing an original song while simulating oral sex.
