Swedish electro-pop duo Sally Shapiro has announced the forthcoming album Somewhere Else, out on February 26 with Paper Bag Records. The new album breaks the synth-pop duo's silence as the first release since their 2009 full-length Guilty PleasureSomewhere Else features Electric Youth (known from the Drive soundtrack), Anoraak and Le Prix. The duo's melancholic harmonies and the 80s disco feel are still present, but there are also indie pop influences (á la Belle & Sebastian), as well as touches of funk, IDM, trance, jazz and ambient. Shapiro says, "The title describes the recurrent theme in the music and my life, to somehow never be satisfied with what you have, or where you are - to always wish you were somewhere else."

In 2007, Paper Bag Records released Shapiro's debut, 
 Disco Romance, a nostalgic trip back to romantic italo disco of 1984. The album was revered by the press, nominated as "dance/electronic album of the year" at the U.S. Plug Awards and was deemed one of Pitchfork's 'Top 50 albums of 2007.' The duo was subsequently remixed by LindstrømTensnake, Junior Boys, CFCF, and Juan MacLean. Known for her shyness, Shapiro does not reveal her real name, will not even let Agebjörn into the studio when she sings, and has never performed her songs live. After a handful of DJ dates in 2008, she decided to never ever stand on stage again. Instead, the music has been spread through blogs, radio channels and dancefloors worldwide, and even been played on the Armani catwalk.
