Sam Sparro to Release Debut LP in the U.S. on June 24


I know this news will get some of you very excited.

Spam Sparro''s amazing debut album will officially be released in the U.S. later this month. Of course, all you savvy pop aficionados around the world have already found a way to get a hold of this good piece of music, but the time has come to pop the champagne and share our little secret with others.

Sparro's self-titled debut album will hit U.S. shores on June 24 and will be released on Universal Repuplic, the label that previously brought us acts like Amy Winehouse and Mika.

The openly gay pop singer brings an utterly delicious, solid and consistent blend of pop, soul and funk that has superstar written all over it. It's Prince, Goldfrapp and D'Angelo are rolled into one irresistable package. His single "Black & Gold" that typifies Sam’s signature sound – as Sam would it put it, “classic soul meets classic funk mixed with the kind of music I listen to now."

I grabbed the vid and the song from Itunes and can't wait for the album. I'm usually one of the "savvy pop aficionados" you mentioned, but he's 'one of ours' and I wanna do whatev, to help him out. Great Vid btw. for an artists first foray into the muck; dontcha think.
Keep rocking the Ipod!!!
