Sparks singer Russell Mael has shared a two-minute self-isolation video – you can watch it below.
Taking to Twitter today (March 31), the Los Angeles duo’s vocalist uploaded a clip titled ‘A day in the life of Russell, a self-isolating Spark’ while also urging fans to stay at home.
Beginning with a ringing telephone, the clip sees Mael awake in his bed at 8 am and go about his early-morning lockdown routine.
At 10 am, the singer reads the newspaper with a cup of coffee ahead of exercising in his living room. After napping on the sofa, he heads outside and is later seen reading in the garden, tending to his plants, collecting his post and – crucially – washing his hands.
Towards the end of the video, Mael works on new music in his home studio before retiring to bed at 11:30 pm.
