British pop darling Sophie Ellis-Bextor only just dropped an album last year, but she’s already heading back into the studio.
The “Murder On The Dance Floor” songstress might be best known for her brand of icy dance-pop tunes over the years, but Ellis-Bextor surprised fans with her wondrously dreamy foray… More »
We have literally lived through one of the most epically sucktastic winters in recorded history, between the heavy snowfall, rivers of slush, piles of ice and, um, rain (boo hoo, Los Angeles). Over the past three freezing months, America turned to several things for salvation to escape the chill: The convenience of ordering takeout food;… More »
It’s been a true pleasure seeing Sophie Ellis-Bextor have another hit album in the UK with Wanderlust, as previous efforts like Make A Scene and Trip The Light Fantastic were woefully overlooked by the music-buying public at large. And the charming, string-laden “Runaway Daydreamer” makes for an excellent choice for follow-up single to slow ballad… More »
Wanderlust, the stripped-down, more organic and less dance-pop new album from Sophie Ellis-Bextor, turned out to be the first surprise hit of 2014 in the UK when it was released last month. It’s a record that, personally speaking, may seem a bit left field, given Sophie’s previous output, but somehow just clicks by about the… More »
Sophie Ellis-Bextor keeps it simple in her “Young Blood” video. The ever-sophisticated songbird spends most of the clip wandering around an abandoned pier in terrible weather. It’s extremely British but so is the 34-year-old, whose poshly accented voice is basically a national treasure.
Directed by long-time collaborator Sophie Muller, the rest of the visual… More »
English songstress Sophie Ellis-Bextor has moonwalked out of the nightclub and into a swanky piano lounge with her upcoming LP Wanderlust, which sees her abandoning the dance-pop sound of her first four albums in lieu of a sound that’s classic, simple and elegant. (With most artists, that’s code for “boring,” but Ellis-Bextor just has one of those… More »
For her fifth album, it’s clear now that Sophie Ellis-Bextor has shed her dance-pop skin and opted for a richer, more classic pop sound. Gone are producers like Richard X, Greg Kurstin and Xenomania, who the 34-year-old British songstress worked with on her two most recent albums — though she seems to have made a… More »
A new Sophie Ellis-Bextor album is almost upon us, which is always cause for celebration. The porcelain-faced diva said she’s taking things in a new direction this time around and that is reflected by the cover. Gone are the glitter and sequins. Instead, the Brit appears to be sitting in the kitchen wearing my grandmother’s… More »
Sophie Ellis-Bextor may have once committed “Murder on the Dance Floor,” but laying her distinct voice over a dance track is anything but a crime. French DJ Mathieu Bothieu is the latest to utilize Sophie’s vocals for his new track “Beautiful,” which aptly describe both the sound and look of the Brit chanteuse. Over the… More »

While we’ve always known Sophie Ellis-Bextor was no goody two-shoes (she did commit “Murder On The Dance Floor,” after all), we have to admit, we are a little startled by the F-bomb in the title of the latest song to feature the English songbird. It’s called “F*ck With You,” and it comes to you courtesy… More »
If you’re like us, then you occasionally scratch your head over the odd paths UK songbird Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s pop career has gone down since her “Murder On The Dancefloor” days. And then you have a cry in your Corn Flakes over the fact that she hasn’t released an album since 2007’s disjointed-but-spectacular Trip The Light… More »
