Ahead of the release of Sophie Delila’s new album ‘My Life Could Use A Remix’ (out June 9th via Caroline UK/Universal), the London based French born singer songwriter shares an unplugged performance of her Dan Black co-penned track ‘Me You Right Now’.
“I wrote ‘Me You Right Now’ with Dan Black, an amazingly talented British singer/songwriter based in Paris,” says the singer. “I’m the Frenchie in London and he’s the Brit in Paris so it’s always funny to share our views on the cities we live in!”
Even if Sophie Delila thinks her life could use a remix, most people would be happy with the original version. Indeed, Delila is a unique artist who has devoted her whole existence to music, always pushing her limits, trying to widen her artistic horizons and boost her creativity.
For her second album with Universal, My Life Could Use A Remix, which overflows with her love for rhythmic melodic pop soul, she has relentlessly tracked down her own truth. For the past two years, she has worked in her studio in London, where she now lives, and written about sixty songs, making inspiration, risk-taking and authenticity key elements of her quest. She has been right to be so demanding, since she has succeeded in writing a collection of radically urban modern songs, which also ask timeless questions and reveal her weaknesses. She sings “What Did I Do”, echoing the painful and sudden rejection of a best friend who lives on another continent. She wonders “Where Does the Love Go”, in a mid-tempo ballad loaded with divine piano and backing vocals. And the catchy “If I Should Die Tonight” sounds like a real confession on the dancefloor, with an implacable beat.
