Wildcard (week 1):
Sophie Ellis-Bextor – Wild Forever

Please let me introduce the first ever Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. This is my ‘track of the week’, which may be a single track or an album track (for what’s the difference, nowadays?). A new Wildcard will be announced each Wednesday (Wildcard Wednesday, anyone?).

Talking about being appropriate… This week I chose Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Wild Forever to be the Wildcard, already the standout track off her album Familia. It was produced by Ed Harcourt, who also produced her previous album, Wanderlust. This couple of cd’s shows a mature side of the singer, who is best known for ultimate pop songs like Murder On The Dancefloor and Spiller’s Groovejet, an instrumental that she added vocals to.

Familia already spawned the singles Come With Us and Crystallise, that should’ve been bigger hits. Hopefully Wild Forever will prove the third time’s lucky.
