Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Songs From The Kitchen Disco: Album and tour preview
During lockdown, Sophie Ellis-Bextor turned her home into a mini live concert arena and entertained hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers with her music.
The videos were so successful that she has now announced a new album, called ‘Songs from the Kitchen Disco’ to be released on October 23.
That’s followed by a tour of the same name commencing in May 2021, bringing together all of the ‘camp and frivolity’ of her original home show to live stages across the country.
On the Kitchen Disco Tour, Sophie said: “During lockdown, our family kitchen discos became a precious time where we could all bop about and be a bit silly. It made me feel connected to everyone who joined us and I can honestly say the music was a real tonic which brought sparkly joy to my soul every Friday.
"The discos we shared have inspired me and now I want to see all your faces so I can sing for you. I want to give everyone a night where just for a little while, we can all lose ourselves under the mirror ball and dance and have fun. Won’t that feel magical?! I cannot wait!
The album will be a collection of the songs that soundtracked her lockdown kitchen disco. It will also feature all of Sophie’s biggest and best-known disco hits in one place for the first time.
Available on various colourful and collectable formats (CD, double vinyl LP and tape) the album will include six Top 10 hits, including Murder on the Dancefloor and Take Me Home, plus a brand new single to be announced soon.
