Sophie's self-titled final album to be released in September.

The self-titled second and final album from visionary Sophie is set to be released on September 27, 2024. This record was finalised by her long-time studio manager Benny Long and is the follow-up to her 2018 debut album, 'Oil Of Every Pearl’s Un-insides'. The first track from the album 'Reason Why (featuring Kim Petras and BC Kingdom)' is available to listen to now. 

Sophie's family have released a statement below:

“When we, Sophie’s family, took our first steps towards bringing this project to fruition we contacted the dear friends with whom she envisioned the album. We wrote, ‘We have been finding comfort in the music Sophie left us, it is a gift that we truly cherish as we try to find a way forward, with Sophie forever at the center of our worlds.

“Sophie didn’t often speak publicly of her private life, preferring to put everything she wanted to articulate in her music. It feels only right to share with the world the music she hoped to release, in the belief that we can all connect with her in this, the form she loved most.

“This album has always told the story of Sophie’s musical journey, a cacophony of skill and creative vision, eclipsing time and genre. Her unique sound world moves at an emotional level, encouraging the listener to intuitively embrace the ever-evolving landscape of light and dark, soft and hard, to the end of self-love and joyful self-acceptance. Emphasising contradictions of sound and material, Sophie’s work supersedes the pure aural to create the dimension she dreamed of.

“Now, it holds another poignant meaning, it tells a life story, from mysterious unknown, through wild clublands, to euphoric immateriality.

“Sophie gave all of herself to her music. It’s here that she can always be found.”
