The album was created by SOPHIE alongside some of her most cherished collaborators. It was close to completion when she tragically passed away, but has been lovingly finalised by those who hold her closest.

“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 centre of our worlds.”

“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.”

‘SOPHIE’ is the eponymous follow-up to the 2018 debut ‘OIL OF EVERY PEARL’S UN-INSIDES’. It will serve as the final SOPHIE release, adding new depth and meaning to an eternally progressive canon of artistry.

Benny Long, SOPHIE’s studio manager and most trusted sounding board for more than a decade, has lovingly completed the album, honouring SOPHIE’s vision.

‘Reason Why’ (featuring Kim Petras and BC Kingdom) is out now. ‘SOPHIE’ is released 27 September.
