Renowned artist Sophie Ellis-Bextor is making waves in the music industry once again, having recently inked a record deal with Universal, her former label. The “Murder on the Dancefloor” singer is gearing up to unveil fresh musical offerings later this year.

Originally a chart-topping sensation 23 years ago, “Murder on the Dancefloor” experienced a resurgence in popularity after being featured in the film Saltburn. The song’s widespread acclaim catapulted Sophie back into the limelight, with it securing a spot among the top five most-played tracks globally last week.

A confidential source within the music industry revealed to the Mail on Sunday, “Sophie has become a global star again. Universal, her former record label, has eagerly secured her, and she is poised to release new music later in the year. Anticipation is high, and she is likely to surpass her previous stardom. It has taken Sophie by surprise, and she is thrilled and genuinely excited about this unexpected turn of events.”

Sophie Ellis-Bextor, now 44, expressed her excitement, saying, “It’s just an extraordinary thing, and it’s quite hard to get my head around. It’s feeling a bit more real now, but I’m trying my best to just enjoy it.”

Having initially gained prominence with releases in the 2000s, Sophie reentered the public consciousness during the Covid lockdown by live-streaming her “Kitchen Discos” on Instagram. The success of these virtual performances led to her hosting a BBC Radio 2 show of the same name. Last year marked another milestone as she made her debut on Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage, further solidifying her enduring presence in the music scene.
