Sophie Ellis-Bextor of course needs no introduction.
But I was happy to hear there was a new album and boy is it a gem. It really lives up to her standards.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor previously announced on Facebook that the new album was inspired by her most recent visit to North America, particularly Mexico. It is titled “Familia”, a title that implied a close-knit family style. Sophie explained that the new album “was inspired by a few things, really, I wanted something with a Spanish or Italian feel.”
On the 20th July 2016, “Familia” became available to pre-order in the UK, with a release date of 2 September 2016. So if you don’t have it yet, why not?
The first single of the promotion is the song Come With Us , is a funky disco track that is absolutely enjoyable.
Come With Us
Whoa, how the time has flown since the first Sophie Ellis-Bextor album came out. Check out this cool interview with the lovely Sophie.

The Pool speaks to musician Sophie Ellis-Bextor about her new album “Familia”, being a woman in music and the story behind her tattoo.
Now this is a wonderful pieced. Sophie Ellis-Bextor dropped into The Cwtch and performed a single off her brand new album “Familia”. Very simple acoustic guitar for background and the beautiful voice of the wonderful Sophie.
OK, so then I saw this great video, from the same session where Sophie performed an awesome version of a great hit from her first album, one of my all time favorites.
