Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Next ‘Wanderlust’ Single Will Be “Runaway Daydreamer”

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 third listen.

Lead single “Young Blood” is now set to be followed up by the string-laden, slightly “Stand By Me”-esque “Runaway Daydreamer.” Like the rest of the album, the track was produced by Ed Harcourt, and it has an official release date of March 31. Give the song a spin below.
