Cosmosphere is the debut studio album of Jape released on the Volta Sounds label in 2003.[4] The album received airplay on national radio on shows such as Donal Dineen's Here Comes the Night on Today FM.[5] Like its successor, The Monkeys in the Zoo Have More Fun Than Me, which was released the following year, it contains eight tracks. The album is thirty-three minutes in length. Jape frontman Richie Egan was inspired to write the album in 2003 after he had developed Jape following a week's stay at the family home of Niall Byrne in Avoca, County Wicklow.[1] Byrne is a member of the band The Redneck Manifesto, a band which Egan was and remains part of.[1]
