New Video Alert - Sam Sparro - Happiness

Fresh from performing in Sydney & Melbourne these last few days, who delighted SCP with a gig full of disco funky tracks (more on that shortly), Mr Sam Sparro has released the video for his lead single Happiness off his sophomore album Return to Paradise.

Return To Paradise, the eleven track follow up to Sam’s debut self titled album, will be released in Australia on Friday May 25.  Return To Paradise is a play on nostalgia and “paradise garage” – a genre derived from the hedonistic discotheque scene in New York in the late 70s that began in a parking lot (giving rise to the term “garage”), famous for its unique and eclectic style of disco and dance music.
The central themes are love and loss, and the quest for inner joy and happiness. Sparro said about the album “A lot of the songs are about me trying to find my sense of innocence and peace of mind and things that I felt had escaped me for a while”.

Whilst drawing on influences from the 70s and 80s, the album is still very contemporary with a modern take on these themes.

Check out the video below. Happiness is available on iTunes now
