Sophie Ellis-Bextor's "Young Blood": Listen

In case you hadn't heard, Sophie Ellis-Bextor's fifth LP Wanderlust is out on January 20 (that would be next year, sillies), and it's a complete departure from her dance-pop sound of yore. The first single, "Young Blood," is now available to listen to in full.

As you can hear, the Ed Harcourt-produced ballad is a bit Adele-meets-John-Newman-and-then-they-fuck-on-silk-sheets-for-an-hour.

Ain't that a kick in the nuts?
