- All through this year, the focus is on Kim Wilde's 40 year career. It's a great oppurtinity to do a retrospective journey through her work from 1981 until now. For that occasion Wilde Tapes proudly presents the new series called 'Let's celebrate'.
- While most people in the UK are in quarantine, some artists have taken to entertaining people all over the world right from their own living room using social media. One of them is Sophie Ellis-Bextor, who has taken to organising Friday night disco's at her home. The first of these took place on March 27, and yesterday evening, during the second edition, she performed a cover version of 'Kids in America'. It doesn't happen very often that an artist with such a lengthy track record in the charts takes on the song, so this was a special one.

A message from Marty Wilde
- Large parts of the world are now facing the biggest crisis since World War II, caused by a virus. Many countries have resorted to lockdown, curfews and other extreme measures, forcing people into their homes. It's very shocking, but at Wilde Life we feel there's no reason to become desperate. If you are healthy and locked in at home, you're probably bored as well. As a fan of Kim Wilde, you are probably interested in more information and Wilde Life will be offering it to you. Here's a few things we are doing these coming weeks to keep you amused.
Kim Wilde during the coronavirus crisis
- The year 2020 will become historic for the Covid-19 pandemic. Several European countries are now in lockdown. For artists, depending on live work for their income, this poses a particular problem. Which is why many resort to selling music online. And so, there is some good news: we finally get to hear the songs Scarlett Wilde recorded eleven years ago when she was considering her own career in music. Some of these tracks were released under the name 'Scarlett Fever'. The original lineup was Scarlett (vocals, keyboards), Shane Lee (guitar), Neil Amon (bass) and Bobby Peters (drums).
