When Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s single “Bittersweet” debuted and peaked at #25 on the UK chart in May, it was disappointing to say the least. But perhaps “Not Giving Up On Love,” her second offering off her upcoming fourth LP, will give her the hit she needs. The dance jam is a dreamy collaboration (does Sophie do any other kind?) with DJ Armin Van Buuren, and you can give it a listen below.

The opening lyrics to “Not Giving Up On Love” could almost be describing Sophie’s feelings about her chart fortunes over the past year: “I know you’re feeling restless, like life’s not on your side/It’s weighing heavy on your mind.”
The song is set to appear on both Ellis-Bextor’s Straight To The Heart LP (due out in October) and Buuren’s Mirage (September 10). The single, billed as Armin Van Buuren vs. Sophie Ellis-Bextor, will be released digitally worldwide this Friday (August 20).
Why not boost Sophie’s spirits by not giving up on her and downloading it?
