Sophie Ellis-Bextor has made available the new orchestral version of her biggest hit “Murder On The Dancefloor” as the first taster of her forthcoming greatest hits with a difference – “The Song Diaries”, which is a collection of her biggest hits given a classy makeover with a full orchestra.

The album also includes orchestral re-recordings of her other hits “Take Me Home”, “Mixed Up World” and even her number one with DJ Spiller, “Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love)”!

The album is out on March 15th and covers tracks from all six of her studio albums. Track listing for “The Song Diaries” is as follows:

3. Murder On The Dancefloor (Orchestral Version)
4. Move This Mountain (Orchestral Version)

17. Love Is You (Bonus Track)

Sophie believes that “the increased popularity of streaming music means the concept of a greatest hits has changed, with many artists opting to re-work their hits to give them a fresh spin”. Take That of course showed the way with their hugely successful album “Odyssey“, their eighth UK number one album, which contained ‘reimagined’ versions of their hits.

Sophie has always alluded herself to producing ‘posh pop’ and this album is certainly another example of her own, exclusive brand of music that has been so successful now for nearly twenty years.
