TRACK RECORD

MUSIC: M.I.A., Sam Sparro. Plus: Brandy And Monica Reunite!

Sam Sparro recently released “Shallow End,” the first track from his upcoming new album, Return to Paradise. Set against an Instagram clip—similar to the one Goldfrapp released not long ago—the video for the song features footage shot during the album’s recording sessions.

“End” is a more upbeat, disco-infused song than Sparro’s 2008 hit, “Black and Gold.” It’s got a kind of dance-all-night-with-ball-queens kind of vibe (not to mention the de rigueur sax solo).

Fans of Scissor Sisters and Hercules and Love Affair, this one’s for you.
