Sophie will release her fifth album, Wanderlust on January 2014. The album was co-written and produced by acclaimed singer-songwriter Ed Harcourt and recorded in just two weeks with a tightly-knit group of musician friends.

A winter morning black as any night
A landscape held in time under the ice
There's a house on the hill
She's living there still
Rooms are full of pictures black and white

So the story goes, she lives alone
The company is framed in monochrome
She keeps them alive
Long after they've died
No one ever knows until they're gone

Stand still evermore
Pose for eternity with me
Your soul on my wall
Love is a camera full of memories

I once went to her door when I was young
The spell to be her subject was too strong
Now from here behind glass
I see more fools pass
Flies caught in the secret web she's spun

Stand still evermore
Pose for eternity with me
Your soul on my wall
Love is a camera full of memories

Every photograph is a cenotaph
Won't you stay here a while
In a flash you'll see, you belong to me
All I need is a smile

Stand still evermore
Pose for eternity with me
Your soul on my wall
Love is a camera full of memories
