In time he met Jesse Rogg, who signed him to the independent Modus Vivendi Music
label and released the six-track Black and Gold EP in late 2007. The title track caught on quickly and led to a recording deal with Island Records
in the United Kingdom. Upon its major-label re-release in March 2008, "Black and Gold" had already begun rising up the U.K. singles chart, thanks in part to heavy BBC Radio 1 airplay, and in the weeks following its release, the single continued its ascent toward the uppermost reaches of the chart.
In 2008, Sparro prepared and released his self-titled full-length debut album. In 2013, he returned with the old-school disco and R&B-influenced Return to Paradise, which featured the single "Happiness." He followed with a trio of EPs issued in as many years, with Quantum Physical, Vol. 1 arriving in late 2014, Vol. 2 a year later, and Vol. 3: Conspiracy in summer 2016. A year later, just in time for the holiday season, Sparro released Christmas in Blue, a four-song covers EP featuring the Charlie Brown classic "Christmas Time Is Here," Wham!
's "Last Christmas," and more. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
