It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 10 years since Pop Princess, Sophie Ellis Bextor burst on to the scene with the fantastic ‘Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love)’. Since then she has released three incredible albums (‘Read My Lips’, ‘Shoot From The Hip’ and ‘Trip The Light Fantastic’) and hit after hit of perfect pop and dance records such as ‘Catch You’ and ‘Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer)’. And the latest addition? ‘Bittersweet’.

What can I say? She’s done it again! ‘Bittersweet’ is a wonderfully catchy dance track which I can instantly see being played on dancefloors up and down the country for years to come. With blissful beats and divine lyrics like ‘one touch and there’s a rush of electricity’ – you simply can’t help but dance and sing along to it!

And what’s more, it passes the ‘In My Head’ test with flying colours! Having had it in my head for several days, I’ve never for one moment become remotely irritated by it, in fact I just love it all the more! And the fact that it has remained in my head for so long just proves how catchy it is!

This has, of course lead to some embarrassing situations in public, when I have suddenly burst out with something like ‘Any time you call my name’ or ‘So won’t you show me all there is to know’!

So, to conclude: ‘Bittersweet’ is an absolutely fabulous track, (which I cannot stop listening to!) leaving me very excited for the release of ‘Straight To The Heart’!


Bittersweet will be released on 3rd May.

Sophie’s fourth studio album ‘Straight To The Heart’ is expected for release in August this year.
