Sophie Ellis-Bextor is coming to Prague to present her brand new seventh studio album HANA
HANA was 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, the title references the Japanese word for ‘blossom’, giving an early introduction to the glorious alternative pop record.
Following her much-loved Kitchen Disco parties shared on Instagram over lockdown, Sophie has since released two albums, Songs from the Kitchen Disco and Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Kitchen Disco: Live from the London Palladium, which followed her sold out Kitchen Disco live tour.
