The Swedish act will release its third album in February.
The name Sally Shapiro actually refers to a two-person outfit: Shapiro herself and her producer Johan Agebjörn. The Swedes have been making retro-leaning italo disco together since 2006, across two albums and two remix LPs. The new record will feature more live instrumentation than in the past, and will also include collaborations with Electric Youth and Anoraak. Somewhere Else reportedly folds in more genres than just traditional italo disco, with Shapiro saying in the press release: "we don't think of ourselves as an italo disco duo anymore, but... people will call this an italo disco album anyway." Though their previous full-length My Guilty Pleasure was released by disco heavyweight Permanent Vacation, Somewhere Else will come through Paper Bag Records, the Toronto label that released their debut. You can stream the first single "What Can I Do" here.
