Sophie Ellis-Bextor wants to work with Kings of Leon
The 31-year-old singer would like to try a new direction with her future material and has a number of collaborations in mind including with rockers The Killers and electric outfit Daft Punk.
She said: "I`d love to workwith someone really different like the Killers or Kings of Leon. I think it would be good to do something really in a completely different direction.
"Daft Punk would be great fun as well."
However, she`s keen to make sure she doesn`t alienate her fans by taking a complete U-turn in her style.
She said: "I don`t know if I want to do something that`s different just for the sake of it so it might be quite a logical step away. But still, I don-t want to exclude anybody. It has to make sense. The sort of music I make is the sort of music I listen to. It`s got to be something I have the same passion for."
The `Bittersweet` singer also admits she is scared about becoming irrelevant with the rise new singers like Ellie Goulding and Florence and the Machine.
She told BANG Showbiz: "I think relevance is very much the sort of fear you have. You want to keep being relevant to what`s going on.
"If I`m honest, that`s the biggest fear when you work in an arena like pop. It`s very much about the here and now. But I`m very happy to be doing what I do. It`s nice to be wanted."
