After four long years Sam Sparro is back! He's dropped a few tracks in the past few months (not in the US though, unfortunately) as we all anticipate his forthcoming sophomore album Return To Paradise, which follows up his 2008 self-titled release. Today we have the video for his latest single, "I Wish I Never Met You", which looks something straight out of Boardwalk Empire with its Prohibition-esque scenes directed by Mike Rosenthal.
Just this past weekend I ended my Record Store Day catching Mr. Sparro over at Highline Ballroom where he played a ton of the new material including this song. He intro'd a lot of songs explaining that he went through a really nasty breakup and wrote his way out of the bad place it had put him in. "I Wish I Never Met You" resonated well in the room and from the looks that the crowd was giving Sparro they had all felt the same way he did when he wrote this song.
Return To Paradise is slated for a June 11th release in the UK. No word on a US release yet. More on that in the coming months.
Also, please be patient with this video while it loads in all of it's non-geo-locking glory.
