Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Familia (6th album) - Pop/Folk/Disco
#1
[video=youtube;ko17yNuSo5A]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ko17yNuSo5A[/video]

Having recently given birth to her fourth baby, Jesse Jones, Sophie Ellis-Bextor returns to music with her sixth solo album, 'Familia', which is out later this year. During the early stages of the album, Sophie said the album will have some Mexican influences, unlike her last album 'Wanderlust', which was influenced by Eastern-European music.

Sophie co-wrote all the songs with Ed Harcourt. Ed produced the album, along with the same bunch of people who worked on Wanderlust. Early in February, Richard Jones (Sophie's husband) posted a complete list of songs that were made for the album. Sophie hasn't confirmed the tracklist or order. But we're hoping that all the songs in this list make it to the album:



  1. Intro
  2. Here Comes The Rapture
  3. Unrequited
  4. Hush Little Voices - can be heard @ 7:02 in the video above
  5. Cassandra
  6. My Puppet Heart - can be heard @3:38 in the video above
  7. Death Of Love
  8. Saddest Happiness
  9. Come With Us - can be heard @4:30 in the video above
  10. Crystallize
  11. Wild Forever
  12. Don't Shy Away

Sophie, Richard and Ed teased us with various snippets on their instagram accounts throughout the recording of the album. Here are some of those snippets that didn't make it onto the making-of video:

It sounds like something out Garbage would make. Very interesting!


Sophie posted these:

https://www.instagram.com/p/BBTEIHOrwd4/ - very disco, again


Richard posted this:

Cenzo Townshend (who has worked with Kaiser Chiefs, Florence & The Machine, Foxes, U2, Snow Patrol, Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party, a-ha, Friendly Fires, Patrick Wolf and many more) has mixed this album for Sophie.

Welcome to the Great MD,saintking! Thanks for introducing Sophie Ellis Bextor! An artist worth checking out!
" WHEN I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD, MY MOTHER ALWAYS TOLD ME THAT HAPPINESS WAS THE KEY TO LIFE. WHEN I WENT TO SCHOOL, THEY ASKED ME WHAT I WANTED TO BE WHEN I GREW UP. I WROTE DOWN "HAPPY". THEY TOLD ME I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE ASSIGNMENT AND I TOLD THEM THEY DIDN'T UNDERSTAND LIFE."

Definitely! Its sad that she's so underrated!

Her last album, Wanderlust, was a departure from her usual pop/dance, but it was an incredible album.

For those of you who haven't heard anything from that album, check these out - Birth Of An Empire, Until The Stars Collide, Young Blood, Wrong Side Of The Sun, Love Is A Camera and Cry To The Beat Of The Band.
