We will sleep well tonight knowing that forever we can say we co-starred in a film with Cate Blanchett!” 

“The Girl Is Crying in Her Latte” is the first single from Sparks’ 26th album of the same name which will be released May 26, anfd will be supported by a series of world tour dates, with several stops in Europe and North America starting May 23.
