Fischerspooner share their new single “TopBrazil” off their upcoming album, Sir, out February 16 via Ultra Records. The stunning companion video was directed by Tom C J Brown and features frontman Casey Spooner interwoven into a collage of male bodies becoming one, all the while blurring the lines of masculinity and femininity paired with overt sexuality. Spooner explains, “The video celebrates a pop aesthetic typically reserved for the female archetype and liberates the male form to be sexual, expressive and fearless.” It embodies the album’s resistant narrative as an overtly queer and celebratory body of work in response to the current atmosphere in America.
Sir is the group’s first album in nearly a decade. Entirely produced by Michael Stipe, it features additional production by BOOTS (Beyonce, Run The Jewels, FKA Twigs) and mixing by both Stuart White (Beyonce’s Lemonade) and Andy LeMaster. The collection of erotically-charged, yet profound songs was crafted by Spooner and Stipe at Michael’s home in Athens, GA, alongside Michael’s longtime collaborator Andy LeMaster. The album also features contributions by Spooner’s longtime collaborator Le Chev, as well as Thomas Haskett.
Fischerspooner started as a DIY art project with their very first performance at a Manhattan Starbucks, which ultimately transformed into a spectacle that ushered in the electroclash pop revolution. They pushed the boundaries of music and art in unparalleled ways that laid the foundations for many of today’s biggest artists. Long known for their spectacular live performances, they returned to the stage and played their first show in almost a decade in October at Brooklyn Steel, with West Coast shows lined up for March this year.
