“They’ve updated their sound all the way into the future…nods as much to FKA Twigs or Arca as any songs they’ve made before…Classic Fischerspooner, but made for these times.” – PITCHFORK

“Sir is no accident or lark… Its sound and its vision are nipped and tucked for contemporary consumption…The result is sonic and narrative focus, 13 mid-tempo pop songs with almost zero fat.”
– NPR

“Sir, breaks new ground for electroclash pioneers Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner.”BILLBOARD

“with Sir (Ultra), an album so catchy and dance-inducing it takes a second to realize that some of its lyrics tell private stories, that indeed Spooner and Fischer are out to create a new anthem for boys who love boys who love boys.”INTERVIEW

“Alluring”DAZED

“intimate as hell and hot hot hot…The ultimate embodiment of the album’s loud, proud, erotically-charged response to the current political climate in the US” i-D

“gleaming club opus” STEREOGUM

“The music propels queerness to the forefront, dealing with sexuality as an explicitly political issue, while more personal than the band’s ever dared.”SPIN

Iconic art-pop group Fischerspooner release their first album in nearly a decade, Sir, today via Ultra Records.  Entirely produced by Michael Stipe, the album presents a resistant narrative with an overtly queer and celebratory body of work in response to the current atmosphere in America. The collection of erotically-charged, yet profound songs was crafted by Spooner and Stipe at Michael’s home in Athens, GA, alongside Michael’s close collaborator Andy LeMaster. It also features additional production by BOOTS (Beyonce, Run The Jewels, FKA Twigs) and mixing by both Stuart White (Beyonce’s Lemonade) and Andy LeMaster. In addition, it features contributions by Spooner’s longtime collaborator Le Chev, as well as Thomas Haskett.

In celebration, they share their captivating new video for “Butterscotch Goddam, which was directed by Carlo Van de Roer. Roer said about the project, “The song is about a tumultuous love affair. We shot the video entirely in-camera, using optical devices and new filmmaking tools to play with the push and pull of a dichotomous relationship, and the accumulating distortion of reality that comes with that.”

On speaking about ‘Sir’ Casey said, “When I started this record I was a different person. I thought I knew who I was and what my life was going to be like. I was wrong. So wrong. I lost it all. And I kept losing more and more. I didn’t think I would survive. I had dark thoughts. I struggled to rebuild. I tried to heal. I had to let myself go. This album is a document of a turbulent, wild transformation full of love, loss, lust and redemption. This album is a queer treatise against political conservatism and oppression. This album saved my life. Some days it was all I had. I’m thankful for every disaster that befell me. I’m a better man now. HELL YEAH!”
