It’s been a while since Sophie Ellis-Bextor had a big hit in Australia – almost a decade to be exact – but she’s still churning them out in Europe and recently spoke to Gaydar radio about her much delayed fourth album and the loyalty of her gay fans.
When asked about the release date of Make A Scene, which is believed to include the club hits Heartbreak (Make Me A Dancer) and Bittersweet, the British pop star was somewhat vague.
“I just wish I could give a really specific answer but the album is all mastered and it will be coming out,” she told the interviewer.
“I think it’s looking like May.”
Sophie then thanked the gays fans that have stood by her during four long years of delays.
“If it wasn’t for my gay audience I probably would not have a career,” she admitted.
“I’m a very happy girl, especially when I perform at gay clubs… I’m a sure a lot of straight women would agree with me that it’s actually a very comfortable environment to be in – I’d pick a gay club over a straight club any time.”
