Sophie Ellis Bextor checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@sophieellisbextor) on Tuesday (May 27) with the following message:
I hope you’re all well and enjoying the sun, well, when it is actually nice out. I hope we get a decent Summer this year. I’m trying to think of things to do with Sonny when it’s miserable outside. So far we’ve been down the local Paint-It-Yourself shop and painted plates and a mug for Richard. The other weekend I went to The Life Ball in Vienna which was one huge party. It raises money to combat AIDS and HIV. We opened the show in the official Life Ball Mini which was designed by Agent Provocateur and I sat with Joseph Corre who was lovely. It was such a massive event, it was a real honor to be there.
Meanwhile I’m back in the studio recording new material for my next album and I’m so excited about it all. I can’t say too much about it all just yet but you can be sure that as soon as I can I’ll tell you all about it.
Anyway, that’s about it for now but thank you so much for all your messages in the forum,
Lots of Love Sophie. x
Sophie Ellis Bextor Making 4th Studio Album Before Greatest Hits
April 12, 2008 – A Q&A with Sophie Ellis Bextor has been posted at the singer’s MySpace (@sophieellisbextor) on Friday (April 21), where Soph said, “There’s lots of exciting things going on, but I’m afraid I cannot tell you too much about any of them.” Asked why not, she responded, “Well, one thing is quite an exciting thing to do with my record company and the other is quite an exciting thing to do with other stuff. But I don’t want to jinx either until it’s all signed and sealed.” As for plans to release a greatest hits album, she said, “Well, because I’ve got so much material together that we’re really happy with, I’m actually going to push on and make a fourth studio album, rather than a greatest hits.”
