Sophie Ellis-Bextor 'Makes A Scene,' in Celebration of New Album Launch
Sophie Ellis-Bextor will be celebrating the release of her fourth album, Make A Scene on June 14th via her own label, EBGB in London and tickets are available to the public! YET ANOTHER reason I wish I lived in the UK. UGH! The event will be held at XOYO on Tuesday June 14th, with tickets available at Livenation.co.uk, check out the promotional poster above. Hopefully someone reading gets to go and can tell me who the "GUESTS" are. So jealous!
Make A Scene will be Ellis-Bextor's fourth album and features a mixture of pop, disco, Nu-Disco and 80s electro. Sounds right up my alley! New single, "Starlight" is a "chilled dance anthem" with a "soft but edgy beat," a perfect taste off her album. Make A Scene features a whole slew of in demand dance-pop producers and songwriters including Freemasons, Greg Kurstin, Calvin Harris, Cathy Dennis, Metronomy, Richard X and Armin Van Buuren. The album's opening track, "Revolution," was co-written by Ellis-Bextor, Greg Kurstin and Cathy Dennis, while "Off & On," features production by Calvin Harris, who originally penned the track with Róisín Murphy in mind. The album also includes previous singles "Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer)," "Bittersweet" and "Not Giving Up On Love."
