It's no secret that Sophie Ellis-Bextor
is a lady of leisure, and given that it's almost a year since her previous effort 'Bittersweet' stalled at number 25, one can only assume that the brunches, luncheons and afternoon teas have taken precedence over her music. Thankfully, she's found time in her oh-so-hectic schedule to record a follow-up - and if us Brits take to it as well as our continental neighbours did, then Soph's got nothing to worry about.
Joined by Dutch trance producer Armin van Buuren, E-B pleads: "Hold me now/ Nothing else matters," over a combo of euphoric synths and pulsating beats, resulting in a club thumper more fabulous and heavy than a Big Fat Gypsy
wedding dress. "I'm not giving up, I'm not giving up on us," she asserts, making clear that she ain't going anywhere just yet. With that kind of attitude, Soph can consider her tardiness easily forgiven. > Click here to watch the 'Not Giving Up On Love' video
