Not Giving Up is the second single from Sophie's fourth album

I don't know why they didn't go with "Not Giving Up On Love". I'm going to hate the puns.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor has changed the identity of her next single, Digital Spy can exclusively reveal.

The pop singer originally planned to release 'Off & On' as the third trailer from her upcoming album, Straight To The Heart.

However, she has now decided to release a collaboration with Dutch DJ/producer Armin van Buuren instead.

"It's called 'Not Giving Up' and I'm really excited about doing it. I'm filming a video with him very soon," she confirmed at yesterday's BAFTA TV Awards.

Ellis-Bextor also insisted that she was happy with the performance of her most recent single, 'Bittersweet', which peaked at number 25 on the UK singles chart last month.

"You know what, I'm totally at peace with it. I still love the song. This might sound like something you only say after something hasn't done fantastically, but I can honestly say with my hand on my heart that I've had a long career and I don't get bogged down with that kind of thing," she said.

did i misunderstood or smthg?!
NGU is the 3rd single! so what's the second? bittersweet was the first or not?! am confused :S

@ Eden: "Bittersweet" was considered as the first single from the project. "Not Giving Up" will be the second single. & even though "Heartbreak (Make Me a Dancer" was released as the first single, it was a just collaboration, & not a proper first single.

Okay, this is what I thought when I read the headline: "YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!" =D

Hmm, 'Not Giving Up' is fine enough, doesn't "fill the mouth" as much.

Let's hope it's as good as hyped and will do better than Bittersweet. :)

I can see the press going "Sophie Ellis-Bextor is Not Giving Up". Sigh! But i'm still very excited about the song. Lets hope this does well on the charts. Armin is pretty famous right?
