I do hope this version has "The altogether!" as part of the recording.
I always love how the audience do it live and sometimes she shouts it too.
Along with the foot stomp.
I'll always love this Top of the Pops performance with all the dancers from the video.
I'd love to see another visual spectacle like this from her in the future.
What did she say about it?
Out of all the people to record an orchestral album, I can’t think of anyone more perfect than Sophie. It’s the perfect bridge, bringing together her pop days and the Harcourt albums. The fact it feels like she’s been recording it and preparing to release it for an inordinate amount of time is what makes it feel disappointing. It does make me feel good to know that she is investing so much time curating this and re-recording vocals, but you can understand why people would kind of feel like... she could have recorded an album of original material in this time.
She put up an interview on her website that suggests what @Nunya B mentioned. I do wonder if the "original" track she mentioned is Love Is You even though it's a cover? Surely if she recorded an original song, then it would be a single along with Love Is You and not Murder On The Dancefloor.
Exactly. If she recorded it in a few months and got it out there and we had it now it would be fine. All this extra build-up and time delays feels too much for an album of songs we already know.
Love Is Love is definitely the only new song on the album, it seemed quite clear from how she spoke about it in her PledgeMusic interview.
And I agree, it's not really an *original* new single, but I guess it's new.
I know it's not really a thing nowadays but, unlike a lot of artists, Sophie has some amazing B-sides/unreleased material and it would have been great to have had her go back and re-work some of those for a 'new' collection rather than the obvious songs.
Re-working some of those tracks, with Ed, and continuing with the authentic sound they'd developed, could have been really fun.
01. Pop Wow
02. Yes Sir, I Can Boogie
03. Down with Love
04. Sophia Loren
05. Move to the Music
06. Here's to You
07. Take Me with You
09. Did I?
10. The Earth Shook the Devil's Hand
11. Never Let Me Down
12. Live It Up
Just adding this... amazing cover version
@The Bextorian tweeted a link to the whole one-hour show at 'A Fest' in Minsk (August 11, 2018).
It's really nice that her Russian audience enjoys the songs from the last two albums as much as the first four. Also, its funny that they live for Can't Fight This Feeling, but good for her, I guess.
Spoiler: This was the set-list
01 - Wild Forever
02 - Death Of Love
03 - Young Blood
04 - 13 Little Dolls
05 - Love Is A Camera
06 - Come With Us
07 - Take Me Home
08 - Lady/Groovejet/Sing It Back/Groovejet reprise
09 - Get Over You (the tribal drumming version)
10 - Can't Fight This Feeling
11 - Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer)
12 - Murder On The Dancefloor
13 - Not Giving Up On Love
I don't get why she won't mix up the Familiar/Wanderlust tracks within the setlist as opposed to separating them so distinctly. Either way, that looks like a pretty epic setlist.
At least it's nice she performed 'Can't Fight This Feeling', 'Not Giving Up On Love' and a revamped 'Get Over You'. It feels like she has been using the same setlist for so long now.
Richard’s response to Sophie’s Instagram post about Ed Sheeran had me guffawing for a while. I love this couple! Their sense of humour, their love for each other, the way they work with each other - it’s all so genuine..and so iconic!
I had to leave for work before the end of Sophie's BBC Breakfast interview yesterday. Did she mention a release date? I'm guessing not?
The way she always pays dust to her two best albums is really not the tea.
Some presenter man: "The album is called The Song Diaries and it's out in January."
Sophie: "It is."
Could one of you British fans upload the interview on YouTube? Here's the link, but its geo-blocked - https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0bhmymz
There is a video from BBC Breakfast also in Pledge Music update.
