Album update

Well, tbh there isn't much to say, cos everything's been on the QT. But...

1. The record will definitely be out in January 2009
2. Off & On or Heartbreak Make Me A Dancer won't be singles, at least not the first one
3. She has lots of new material which she likes more
4. The next Rimmel ad will have the new single as the backing song
5. She will be performing the new single on October 28 @ Terrence Higgins Trust Supper
6. A release shortly after New Years eve has been confirmed for the new single from the 4th album, cos its much too early to present it to the public

Okay, so here are my thoughts
1. The record will definitely be out in January 2009
Please please please let it be out before Jan 27!! I'd love to buy it as a gift for myself on my birthday!! If the single is out on New Years Eve or on Christmas, then it would be just perfect for the album to come out on 23rd or so and i can get my copy on the 27th.. On the other hand, i do think that the album coming out in Jan is a little late, unless the album is released along with the first single, meaning, on New Years Day. Cos she would lose out on potential christmas/new year market!!

2. Off & On or Heartbreak Make Me A Dancer won't be singles, at least not the first one
Oh that is so pissing off!! Off & On should have sooooo been the first single! I still think its single material. People listened to it and compared it to Roisin's version etc., which gave the song so much exposure. Thinking practically, if Fascination released the song as a single, instead of uploading it on her MySpace and letting it leak, they would have achieved high sales, cos the song is with every Sophie fan and every Roisin fan. They didn't play their cards right. Thats why sometimes i refer to them as "stupid people who don't care enough about Sophie".


3. She has lots of new material which she likes more

More than Off & On?? Well, that would only mean one thing. TTLF pt. 2! And i mean that quality-wise. TTLF was the perfect pop album, and i think for Sophie it was a big achievement, cos it made her an album artist. Sophie has always experimented with sounds and disco pop suits her well. Indie does too, thats been proved on her very first album (theaudience). Maybe sticking to disco pop for one more album is a good decision after all. Lets cross our fingers and hope this album does well, sales-wise!

4. The next Rimmel ad will have the new single as the backing song
Oh thank god.. At least now her song will get the promotion it deserves. Her songs are always under promoted, and i think this is the best thing that could happen. If the Rimmel ad is overplayed, then everyone will know the song and they'll say "hey isn't this the lipstick song" which is both good and bad. Good cos they'll know the song, and will download and listen to it and like it. Bad cos it will be referred to as "the lipstick (or eyeliner or w/e) song"

5. She will be performing the new single on October 28 @ Terrence Higgins Trust Supper
Oh!! I hope this will be televised, and i'm hoping my friend (littlefish, ahem!) will record this for me (and all the other Sophie fans)... Can't wait to hear the new single, i'm kinda getting the feeling its the Richard X song. Though i don't wanna keep my hopes up for that, cos someone who knows Sophie's management (or something like that) said its a rumour. But Richard's official site did claim that Sophie had to record the middle-8 of the song and she would be done, and there is a registered title as well, with Richard being credited for lyrics.. Click here to see that.

6. A release shortly after New Years eve has been confirmed for the new single from the 4th album, cos its much too early to present it to the public
The song is bound to leak before her performance, thats what happened with Catch You. I think she should just release the single in November and one more in December along with the album on New Years Day... that would make a whole lot of sense, to tap the potential market...

Anyway, in other news, guess who just did a song with Girls Aloud...yes thats right. PSB!! Fucking hell!! I so want their song with Sophie to be released. Its so unfair that Fascination give all the good producers to Girls Aloud and leave Sophie to go select her own producers. In a way, thats good, cos she only picks people whom she is comfortable with and works with and stuff, and her music is not "manufactured"! But sometimes i think i'd wanna hear something well produced from some eminent person. Like the Freemasons and Calvin collabs are excellent. Its great that she could reel them in for the album. I only hope she uses the Richard X song as well... and if possible maybe even the leftover Fred Schneider song (Dontcha Wanna Get Crazy) for the new album...

Here's wishing the best for Sophie!!!
