Fischerspooner Release ‘Sir’ February 16th

Fischerspooner Release ‘Sir’ February 16th
The iconic group Fischerspooner return with their first album in almost a decade, Sir, released February 16th, on Ultra Records. Produced by Michael Stipe, it also features additional production by BOOTS (Beyonce, Run The Jewels) and mixing by Stuart White (Beyonce’s Lemonade) and Andy LeMaster. Long known for their spectacular live performances, they returned to the stage and played their first show in almost a decade on October 27th at Brooklyn Steel.

The highly personal album chronicles a tumultuous and emotionally fraught period of Casey Spooner’s life. It’s a collection of erotically charged, yet profound songs that Casey and Michael crafted at Michael’s home in Athens, GA, alongside Michael’s longtime collaborator Andy LeMaster. Together they delved into the emotional and sexual turbulence that had defined Casey’s life for the past few years, resulting in intensely explicit and honest songs of not only the physical aspects of sex, as Casey made his re-entry into the sexual playground now defined by technology, but also the muddled ways that feelings and self-image are present in that experience. 

Casey says,
Michael Stipe encouraged me to be more emotionally connected and to trust my voice. He also fought for a more raw vocal in the final production. He taught me new ways of creating melody and lyric. He was more than a producer. He was a mentor and a great friend who guided me through troubled times and captured my experience. He lifted me up at my lowest. This album is a document of that experience.

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.
