Sophie Ellis-Bextor's new sound
Sophie Elllis-Bextor has said she's moving away from her trademark "dance" sound with her next album.
The mother-of-three has been in the studio recording her fifth release, due out later this year.
"I've been busy working on the album. It's not dance," she said.
"I've been inspired by English music and some Eastern European stuff."
Sophie, who is married to The Feeling bassist Richard Jones, gave birth to the couple's third son, Ray Holiday Jones, in April.
The singer, who was at a party alongside the likes of Frankie Sandford and Louise Redknapp, to celebrate the Cambridge Satchel Company opening its first store, said: "He's sleeping through fine."
