Her management aren't pushy enough & she's throwing her career away. The new album will flop, a GH will be pushed out (& probably another baby as well) & that's it. She sticks to occasional modelling & motherhood.
this will be her last regular album and it will flop hard and it's her fault. Maybe she will pull out a "Greatest Hits" in 2 years or 3 years, but that's it...she is not pushy enough, she is waiting for nothing..
I think her next single will flop, charting at around #55 or somewhere equivalent, and then the album will be cancelled, and then 4 months later a Greatest Hits nobody knew existed will be released a la Jamelia.
I think her 4th album should be called Discussion and it's not in album format, it's in the format of a topic and we just discuss the album. That way it will definitely exist.
She's a strange fixture in British public life, forever popping up in places. I think if she comes back with a great lead single and can sustain interest, she can take as long as she wants, really. Heartbreak didn't exactly storm the charts but it didn't die on its arse, either, which it could well have done given the absence of any real Promo / support.
The problem is (as everyone keeps saying) that there's so many problems with SEB. Seriously, I think she should just go mad and do a workout DVD and a book and take drugs. Sophie Ellis-Bextor - The Wild Years. Then she can do a raw, gutsy album in 2012.
I think it is Sophie who wants to work further on the album. The label would simply have made her sing a surefire hit by some big producer and get it released soon. I honestly think that Sophie is the one not happy with it and I trust her judgement. I'd rather wait another 6 months for a great record than having a mediocre album released next Monday.

I think the problem is SEB has put SEB on the back burner… sigh.
Being a Sophie Ellis-Bextor fan is
I think this album has 15% chances to come out. What about you?
She has got to release a single before christmas... I don't care if it's a shitty single that doesn't even make it into the top 100.... (Which it obviously would do, it's Sophie! Let's not forget that "Today The Sun's On Us", which I still love, just scraped into the top 100)... I want a new Sophie single!!
This is getting slightly ridiculous. I wish she would just release the album, fuck promotion.
