A posthumous SOPHIE album will be released later this year.

Simply called 'SOPHIE', the second full-length release from the late Scottish DJ, producer, songwriter and singer will arrive through Transgressive and Future Classic on September 27.

Produced by the artist and Benny Long, the project was close to completion when SOPHIE tragically died from an accidental fall in Athens, Greece in January 2021. A statement from her family reads:

"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.”

SOPHIE released her Grammy-nominated debut album, 'Oil Of Every Pearl's Un-Insides', in 2018.
