Sally Shapiro Break Up, Share Final Single
Published Apr 28, 2016Following a decade in pop, Swedish duo Sally Shapiro have announced the end of their collaborative partnership. The duo of producer Johan Agebjörn and vocalist Sally Shapiro released three studio albums and five remix records under the name, but today (April 28) the pair announced they are calling it quits.
Along with the news of their split, the two have shared a final single in "If You Ever Wanna Change Your Mind," which you can hear below. Co-produced by Mitch Murder, the single will be available digitally and as a limited-edition 7-inch through Fika Recordings next month.
Pitchfork reports that a statement from the duo simply reads, "This is it. Thanks for everything. We did the best we could. Everything came from the heart. Everything was in stereo."
A longer explanation from a press release reads as follows:
Our musical tastes don't overlap that much anymore. Johan is more into 90s-style electronica these days, and Sally is into non-electronic pop. In three years, we've only managed to record these two songs as Sally Shapiro, so with this single we have decided to call our musical project a day, and we would like to thank everyone who followed us on this journey.
"If You Ever Wanna Change Your Mind" sees its official release on May 12, with pre-order info for digital and vinyl editions available here.
