Sophie Ellis-Bextor has announced a special album release show at Lafayette in London on 30th June, in celebration of her recently announced new album ‘HANA’, out 2nd June on Cooking Vinyl.
Tickets for the show will go on-sale at 10am on Friday 3rd March on Ticketmaster.
Sophie recently released the first taste of the album, the new single ‘Breaking The Circle’, which along with the entirety of ‘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 Sophie’s first trip to Japan pre-pandemic in 2020.
Sophie recently performed 'Breaking The Circle' with the BBC Concert Orchestra as part of BBC Radio 2’s Piano Room Month, as well as one of her classic tracks and a Madonna cover.
Later this year Sophie will also once again bring her Kitchen Disco live show to audiences in the UK with her Christmas Kitchen Disco tour. This follows on from her much-loved Kitchen Disco parties shared on Instagram over lockdown. Sophie has since released two albums ‘ Songs from the Kitchen Disco’ and ‘Sophie Ellis Bextor’s Kitchen Disco: Live from the London Palladium’, which followed her sold out Kitchen Disco live tour.
