Quite unlike any other artist around at the moment, Sam Sparro has fast become the hot pop property for 2008 and today the album debuted at #1 on US iTunes dance charts.
He has already made his mark in the UK as the quintessential source for savvy dance floor anthems with his debut self-titled album of masterfully crafted tracks. Lead single “Black and Gold” climbed to No. 2 on the UK charts, selling 260,000 copies to date, positioning Sam’s debut to chart in the Top 5 upon its release.
Early US accolade includes Rolling Stone, who included “Black and Gold” on their “Hot List,” as well as Billboard, who proclaim, “He can do it all.”
Sam Sparro’s debut self-title album is a joyous, glad-to-be-alive and utterly delicious mix of lush soulful vocals, electro pop beats and killer choruses. The album shows off Sam’s voice in a full spine tingling effect while highlighting his wildly eclectic musical tastes.
