Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Hana
Sophie Ellis-Bextor has shared a brand-new single ‘Breaking The Circle’ and announced her seventh studio album ‘HANA’ will be released on 2nd June via Cooking Vinyl.
Premiered on Zoe Ball’s Breakfast show on BBC Radio 2, new single ‘Breaking The Circle’ follows Sophie’s Radio 2 A-Listed single ‘Hypnotized’ with Wuh Oh last year (currently at over 1.5M streams) and her most recent album ‘Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Kitchen Disco: Live from the London Palladium’, which was also her first live album.
A pensive and spirited track with a euphoric chorus, ‘Breaking The Circle’ is the first introduction to Sophie’s new album and an official video will accompany the track soon. She says;
“Breaking The Circle is inspired by those late-night moments you have, where you question everything and feel a buzz of adrenaline about what tomorrow might bring. It’s urgent and dramatic and optimistic… the perfect introduction to the new album.”
New single ‘Breaking The Circle’ and her forthcoming album ‘HANA’ were made with long-time collaborator and friend Ed Harcourt. It is their third in a trilogy of records, with each stemming around the thematic frame of a location. The collaboration began in 2014 with the critically and commercially successful ‘Wanderlust’, which was inspired by Eastern Europe, and continued in 2016 with ‘Familia’, inspired by Latin America. New album ‘HANA’, which Harcourt describes as “kaleidoscopic joy”, is inspired by East Asia and began with the album track ‘Tokyo’ and Sophie’s first trip to Japan pre-pandemic in 2020.
