Drop It In Their Laps

Drop It in Their Laps is The Cops' second studio album, released in April 2007, and marked a radical change of direction from the band's earlier work. Described by the band as an expansive pop/rock opus that showcases the best of 80 In The Shade EP and new tracks recorded during the year prior to release, the album was co-produced by singer/songwriter Simon Carter and highly regarded Australian producer Paul McKercher (You Am I, Augie March), with minor production credits to Magoo (Midnight Oil, Regurgitator) and Kim Moyes (The Presets).

The album was recorded at Electric Avenue Studios and mixed at Studios 301 in Sydney then mastered by Chris Gehringer at Sterling Sound, New York.

Drop It in Their Laps is the first full length release from The Cops on their new label, Inertia recordings.
