Sparks Prep Lyrics Book, Get Morrissey to Pen Introduction

Sparks Prep Lyrics Book, Get Morrissey to Pen Introduction
Earlier this year, long-running pop outsiders Sparks issued their first-ever live LP, and now the brother duo have marked another milestone by prepping a lyrics book fittingly titled In the Words of Sparks...

The 200-page printed collection arrives August 31 through Tam Tam Books. In the Words of Sparks... was edited by Ron and Russell Mael, and a press release explains that they selected 75 songs for inclusion. While a full list of what's inside the book has not appeared, the press sheet hints that "This Town Ain't Big Enough for the Both of Us," "Cool Places," "Never Turn Your Back on Mother Nature," and "No. 1 in Heaven" will appear in its pages.

In addition to the lyrics, an introduction has been written by longtime fan Morrissey, who included the band's "Arts & Crafts Spectacular" on his Under the Influence compilation in 2003 and was himself the subject of Sparks' "Lighten Up, Morrissey" single.
