Exclusive: Ellis-Bextor reveals new album title

By
Sophie Ellis-Bextor has revealed that her new album is called "Make A Scene".

She described the title - taken from the chorus lyrics to one of the album's songs - as a reference to "being comfortable in your own skin".

"Especially now that I'm doing my fourth record, I feel like I know what it is that I do. I'm not trying to conform to anyone else's idea of what I should be up to," she told Digital Spy backstage at the Elle Style Awards.

Ellis-Bextor described the record - which features collaborations with producers including Calvin Harris, Richard X, Metronomy's Joe Mount, former Sneaker Pimps star Liam Howe and Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren - as her "danciest yet".

She also revealed that the 12-track album is "all done and dusted" and will be released in the autumn.

It will be preceded by the single 'Bittersweet', which is expected to receive its radio premiere within the next fortnight.

"It's another song I did with the Freemasons. It's very pop-dance," she said. "I think the chorus sounds a little bit like it's from a musical - it's quite sort of dramatic and melodic, and a bit meandering in a good way."

Sophie Ellis-Bextor has released four albums since making her debut as a solo artist in 2001. Her last LP, Trip The Light Fantastic, debuted and peaked at number 7 on the UK albums chart in May 2007.
