Sophie Ellis Bextor Makes a Scene in London
Sophie Ellis Bextor launched her new album 'Make a Scene' at London's XOYO club on Tuesday (14.06.11).
The 32-year-old singer played a set including new single 'Starlight' as well as classics including 'Take Me Home' and 'Murder on the Dancefloor', supported by producer Dimitri Tikovoi.
During a break from the show, Sophie joked about the year-long delay in the release of the album, revealing even her son thinks of her song 'Bittersweet' - which was released in May 2010 - as her "old" material.
Sophie said she's pleased to finally get the album out and that, while she doesn't like to over-think things, she's glad to still be gaining new fans.
She told BANG Showbiz: "I've never been very good at analysing why anything I do works or doesn't work. I kind of like a bit of blissful ignorance, y'know. I just keep doing what I do, and - I know it sounds a bit pious - but I genuinely feel lucky to be getting new fans after a decade of performing and releasing albums."
Sophie is also looking forward to taking the album on the road, and playing across Europe.
She added: "I tend to go back and forth with shows across Europe - it usually starts around spring, then I go on until the end of the year. And it's been cool, the last time I started a tour it was with a huge show in Moscow, which was incredible."Posted on 16 Jun 2011 08:30 to category : Music News
