UNITED KINGDOM – Sophie Ellis Bextor has released a cover of the Alcazar hit ‘Crying at the discotheque’. The song was originally released by the band Alcazar in 2001 who went on to take part in the Melodifestivalen on 5 separate occasions.
A dynamic reworking of Alcazar’s classic 1990 hit, the shimmering Crying At The Discotheque is a flashy, pounding disco-pop banger that presents a sugary-sweet vocal lead from Bextor. She explained:
“I’m really excited to be putting out Crying At The Discotheque. I used to sing it sometimes when I was doing a club set, as I always loved the song, and since I sang it during the kitchen discos it forever holds a special place in my heart. I love this version – such a great song and full of the imagery of the discos I always go to in my head when I’m singing.”
The lively track will appear on ‘Songs From The Kitchen Disco: Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Greatest Hits’, a compilation record scheduled for release on November 13. She will support the new collection with the Kitchen Disco Tour, which is set to hit the UK in May 2021. Tickets are on sale now.
