A few updates

First of all, I'm sorry for the lack of updates. I've been working 13 hours a day because we have audit season going on right now, and I'm really busy. Anyway, lots of things are happening in Sophie world. Here's the news, for those who don't know it already.

1. OFF AND ON WILL BE THE NEXT SINGLE

As bizarre as it sounds, Off And On will be the sixth overall single from this campaign. I'm really pleased that the song is finally being released as a single. Sophie mentioned in the past that she did want to release this song...methinks she had to release those other collaboration-singles just so she could buy some time to setup her own label and get things back on track. It is tragic that Starlight didn't get a good charting, but the song was given A LOT of airplay. I had posted the stats a few weeks ago.

Will we get a video, along with a physical release? We're not sure of any details right now. The Calvin Harris tag could help the song chart well, but we're not sure if this is going to be a solo release or a collaborative one. I wouldn't mind it either way really, as long as we get a b-side, preferably "Calling It Love" (that other song she did with Calvin) or one of the Kish Mauve tracks.

Sophie performed the new single on Tonight's The Night. Her performance was flawless. I never thought she could reach those high notes, but she sang so well. Well done Miss E-B. You always give me so many reasons to love you even more.

Sophie also performed a duet-cover of Dream A Little Dream Of Me with Bobbie Watt on Tonight's The Night.

2. MAKE A SCENE WENT GOLD IN RUSSIA


Make a scene was recently certified Gold in Russia, after peaking at #12 in the albums charts. This is Sophie's second album to go Gold in Russia. Its good to see Sophie getting a lot of attention from Russia. I sincerely hope her Russian fans support her when she changes her direction - from dance-pop to stripped live sounding songs.



Here's hoping that the album is certified Gold eventually in the UK as well.


3. REBELLION (LIES) WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD IN OCTOBER

Rebellion, the Arcade Fire song, that Sophie covered during her tour, will be available for download from the 3rd of October. You can listen to a 1 minute snippet of the song here.

4. THE FEELING HAVE CANCELLED THE NEW SINGLE IN FAVOUR OF ANOTHER SONG

I'm not sure why they decided to release another song instead of Leave Me Out Of It, especially after all those performances. Leave Me Out Of It is absolutely gorgeous, and they should release the song as a single sometime.


5. SOPHIE WAS ON RADIO KENT RECENTLY.

Here's the interview.
Thanks to Paul for the recording and Renzo for the upload.


6. PERFORMANCES AT EUROPA PLUS 2011

She performed 5 songs - Bittersweet, Can't Fight This Feeling, Murder On The Dancefloor, Groovejet (If This Ain't Love) and Heartbreak Make Me A Dancer
