Dick Around is the first US single from Sparks' latest album Hello Young Lovers. The brothers Mael insisted from the get-go that the track was their choice for a single and In The Red are honoring their wishes, releasing a radio edit that pares down the seven-minute album version to a three-and-a-half-minute bombastic rocker. "If the public were only allowed to hear one song from the new album," says Ron Mael, "I have no doubt that 'Dick Around' would be the one selected to best encapsulate the spirit and scope of our new work." The track is featured on a seven-inch vinyl edition -- backed by a live version of "Hospitality On Parade" recorded May 20 at The Avalon in Hollywood -- and on CD accompanied by three different live tracks, an alternate version of "(Baby Baby) Can I Invade Your Country," an interview with Ron and Russell conducted by Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols and two videos. This is an absolute must-have for any Sparks fan.
