A few weeks ago, we shared with you a brief clip of Sophie Ellis-Bextor discussing the direction of the new music she’s been working on. Now we get our first listen to a demo of ’Young Blood,‘ one of the songs she has written with Ed Harcourt. It’s quite a pretty song, but I’m pining for more dance music!
I can’t wait to share the new music with you. I’m really excited about it. It’s not a dance record, or a pop record, but something a bit different. I still love dance and pop music and I will be doing more of that further down the line but sometimes you’ve got to challenge yourself a bit by trying something new. Let’s go on an adventure together!
I wanted to give you something as a thank you for your ongoing support and to give you a taste of what’s to come later this year, so here’s a free download of a demo version of a song from the album. It’s called Young Blood and was written with Ed Harcourt who is making my record with me.
You can watch a live version of the song which was recorded in December at Union Chappel below.
Another album to look forward to in 2013 will be Sophie Ellis-Bextor‘s follow up to 2011′s ‘Make A Scene.‘ She is currently in the studio working on it, and a few nights ago at the Elle Style Awards she revealed that it will have a different sound to what we’re used to from her, briefly describing it as being “a bit less dancey” and having “elements of fairytales and the ’70s and the ’60s.”
We’re interested to see where this new direction takes her, but we hope she still manages to squeeze in some quality dance numbers! She is aiming to release the album in September, and in the meantime you can read more about it in Sophie’s recent Q&A with her official site.
A teaser for Sophie Ellis-Bextor collaboration with French star Mathieu Bouthier has just been revealed. Beautiful sounds like a hard-hitting dance track perfect for the clubs, I’m excited to hear the full thing!
We also just stumbled on Work It Out, a collaboration with the mighty Roger Sanchez that just leaked a few weeks ago. Apparently this was shelved because Polydor had issues with Roger’s label.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor has chosen Revolution as the next single from her latest album Make a Scene. It appears to be an Italian only release at this point, but you can can listen the first official remix provided by Federico Scavo right here!
Personally, I wouldn’t have chosen Revolution as the next single, I would have gone with the flawless Dial My Number, but it’s not me making the decisions!
What do you think of the selection of Revolution as the next single? do you love the remix? Sound off in the comments!
I’m really feeling this frisky little number Fuck With You by Bob Sinclar featuring the fabulous Sophie Ellis-Bextor, taken from Bob’s forthcoming album Disco Crash due for release in January.
It’s filled with cliché lyrics but who really gives a damn with a funky disco beat as good as this? I even find myself bobbing my head along to the rap section!
Sophie is currently hard at work on her fifth album and a couple of details have emerged. It will contain a track called Love is Camera co written with Ed Harcourt and My Heart’s Desire with Fred Ball (who has worked with her before on tracks like Synchronized on the brilliant Make a Scenealbum)
