This song is a lot of fun. Electro-pop at it’s best with Sophie’s fantastic posh accent coming through. I love how you can really hear her accent when she sings. With a lot of artists you can’t tell where they are from when they’re singing.
According to Sophie Ellis-Bextor via her Twitter, “I have styling meeting next week for ‘Heartbreak’ video. What to wear?”
I’m thrilled that she’s shooting a video for “Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer).” Sophie is one of my favorite UK pop stars. She has teamed up with remixers/producers Freemasons on this track, which originally appeared on her official MySpace page along with a Calvin Harris-produced Off & On, (both since removed). It was rumored to be released as a single off of Sophie’s planned Greatest Hits album. Plans for a Greatest Hits album were apparently put on hold but I’m hearing that she is instead working on new material for a brand new album, due out this summer. Fingers crossed!
Now I don’t really consider Wikipedia a reliable resource, but according to the website “Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer)” is being released to radio in the UK May 4th, digitally June 15 and on CD Single on June 22. It will also be released in the rest of Europe around this time, with a full CD Maxi with remixes (hopefully). Also according to Wikipedia, it has a release date in Australia of July 11th and a digital release in the US sometime in 2009. Hmmmm…too good to be true?
