Sophie Ellis-Bextor has announced a 10-date UK tour this April which will follow the release of her new album ‘Wanderlust’ on the 20th January.

The April tour will kick off in Birmingham on the 7th and commence on the 19th in Glasgow and a second London show at Union Chapel on 11th April has been announced due to demand.

‘Wanderlust’ will be Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s fifth studio album. Co-written, produced and arranged by acclaimed singer-songwriter Ed Harcourt, Wanderlust was recorded in a London studio in just two weeks with a tightly-knit group of musicians and friends.

"The album is about roaming and your sense of where you come from, and how you take home with you but you also have this desire to get out there and see the world. I found making this album really empowering. I felt like after ten years of making records, this is like the biggest present to myself. I’m really proud of it and I feel really excited.”
