NEWS: Sophie Ellis Bextor Takes Her Kitchen On Tour!

Sophie Ellis Bextor to release “Kitchen Disco” album and tours in 2021

Never one to miss a trick, Sophie Ellis Bextor is to release her lockdown collection of ‘kitchen disco’ songs on CD and vinyl this October and will tour her kitchen, sink and all, next year! “Songs From The Kitchen Disco” will feature all of Sophie’s biggest and best-known disco hits in one place for the first time ever, including SIX Top 10 hits from “Murder On The Dancefloor” to “Take Me Home” and “Get Over You”, plus a brand new single to be announced soon!

Since March, Sophie has been issuing a new video every week on her YouTube channel to cheer us all up while we were kept prisoners in our own homes and it didn’t just include her own repartee. Sophie also regaled with Madonna’s “Like A Prayer”, Hot Chip’s “Over And Over” and even her own version of “We’ll Meet Again”! Now all these and more have been brought together in a new album of disco tunes to be played at will in YOUR own kitchen, time and time again! Sophie’s children are a regular feature as she performs for them and often with them around her very pink kitchen, complete with disco ball.

And now with everything you can expect from a kitchen disco, Sophie takes to the road next May in nine venues across the UK to wash the dishes, bake the bread and sing a few songs in between all that for our delight! With nearly twenty years of hits to pick from including her 2001 chart topper with DJ Spiller, “Groovejet”, to her many collaborations with the Freemasons, I’m sure she will keep us on a high for however long she plans to be on stage for. The album is out on 23rd October and it comes in a number of different formats including blue and pink vinyl, cassette and multi CD and vinyl bundles!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
