Following her recent single ‘Breaking The Circle’ and latest track ‘Everything is Sweet’, Sophie Ellis-Bextor has shared new single ‘Lost in the Sunshine’, which is taken from her seventh studio album ‘HANA’ released on 2nd June via Cooking Vinyl.
With endearingly romantic lyrics about losing yourself in the bliss of a sunny day, ‘Lost in the Sunshine’ is an uplifting and soulful pop track that builds to a kaleidoscopic and joyful chorus. Sophie says; “Lost is the sunshine is about a lazy, hazy, hot, romantic, perfectly sunny day with the one you love.”
Recent single ‘Breaking The Circle’ followed Sophie’s most recent album ‘Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Kitchen Disco: Live from the London Palladium’, which was also her first live album. ‘Breaking The Circle’ has already been B-Listed at Radio 2 and she also recently shared a remix of the single by Sudlow, which can be listened to here.
Last month, Sophie performed ‘Breaking The Circle’ and her hit single ‘Murder on the Dancefloor’ as well as a cover of Madonna’s ‘Open Your Heart’ alongside the BBC Concert Orchestra for an exclusive BBC Radio 2 Piano Session for Radio 2 and on BBC Sounds.
Sophie’s forthcoming album ‘HANA’ was made with long-time collaborator and friend Ed Harcourt. It is their third in a trilogy of records, with each stemming around the thematic frame of a location. The collaboration began in 2014 with the critically and commercially successful ‘Wanderlust’, which was inspired by Eastern Europe, and continued in 2016 with ‘Familia’, inspired by Latin America. New album ‘HANA’, which Harcourt describes as “kaleidoscopic joy”, is inspired by East Asia and began with the album track ‘Tokyo’ and Sophie’s first trip to Japan pre-pandemic in 2020.
