About Hippopotamus

Hippopotamus is the 23rd studio album by American rock group Sparks. It was released on September 8, 2017, through BMG Records and The End Records, their first record issued on a major label for decades. Following the 2009 radio musical The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman and Sparks' subsequent collaboration with Franz Ferdinand in FFS, the release of Hippopotamus marked a return to the traditional Sparks format of "short, literate, witty pop songs", mixing elements from the band's various stylistic periods. Hippopotamus was met with critical acclaim, and entered the UK Albums Chart at no. 7, Sparks' first UK top-ten appearance in over 40 years.
