This new album has created quite a buzz. It covers some of Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s most iconic pieces for symphony orchestra, featuring her three greatest hits Groovejet (by Italian DJ Spiller in 2000), Take Me Home (a cover of a Cher song from 2001) and, of course, the unmistakable Murder on the Dancefloor (2001), whose delightful flamenco rhythms are an added bonus for the listener on top of the incredible string ensemble. The album then unfurls smoothly track after track, providing a rather moving flashback in the long career of the English singer with a porcelain complexion. It captures the depth of Young Blood (whose charming hook in the intro on piano is replaced by strings and clarinet), the cinematic lyricism of Heartbreak and also includes a rendition of her waltz tune Love Is a Camera.


Admittedly, the orchestra plays in a very classical rather than daring way, but the huge contrast between some of these versions and the original dance pieces certainly makes for an intriguing listen. As an added bonus, Take Me Home and Murder on the Dancefloor have each been revamped in a combination of styles as the sound of the orchestra is mixed with a disco rhythm, and staying within the disco theme, The Song Diaries also includes the singer’s recent track Love Is You (2018) which brings The Love Boat to mind. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

Moby, 30 Years in Search of the Light

Moby is that rarest of artists, a songwriter who has evolved from punk to techno/house to pop, all while continuing to compose ambient music. To mark the release of Reprise, a collection of covers celebrating 30 years of songwriting, Qobuz revisits the career of an artist who has constantly kept the music world off-balance – sometimes even wrong-footing himself – before finally finding his artistic sweet-spot.

Melody Nelson, an Inside View

Fifty years after its release on March 24th, 1971, and thirty years after its creator's death, we look back at the conception and progression of one of Serge Gainsbourg's greatest albums, "Histoire de Melody Nelson", a conceptual story set to music alongside his accomplice Jean-Claude Vannier.
