Sophie Ellis-Bextor shot to fame as a vocalist on Spiller’s huge number one single Groovejet and followed it up with Take Me Home and her worldwide smash hit, Murder on the Dancefloor.
Her solo debut album, Read My Lips was released in 2001 and reached number two in the UK Albums Chart, and was certified double platinum. The album sold more than 2 million copies worldwide.
In 2014, in a departure from her previous dance pop albums, Sophie embarked on her debut singer/songwriter album “Wanderlust” with Ed Harcourt at the helm as co-writer and Producer. It proved to be a critical and commercial success: certified Gold in the UK and spending 3 weeks in the UK top 10 album chart and spawning the hit single “Young Blood“.
Sophie followed this release and collaboration up with 2016’s Familia which saw her return to the dance floor with the radio hit “Come With Us“.
In August 2018 Sophie released Love is You, the new single from her new album, The Song Diaries: orchestrated greatest hits and singles.
The upbeat and glittering Studio 54 inspired single is a cover of Carol Williams’ disco classic, featuring the original sample from Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love).
The Song Diaries will be released in January 2019, produced by Ed Harcourt, with string arrangements by Amy Langley, and additional production from David Arnold.
