 LOUISE THROWS SHOWBIZ BASH

 Dotmusic were in on the action at Louise's showbiz bash last night (Tuesday July 19th).

 The singer launched her long-awaited third album, 'Elbow Beach', at London's Saint M's club at the Saint Martins Lane Hotel and there was free booze and sushi galore.

 The star-studded guest list included Shaznay of All Saints, Martine McCutcheon, Honeyz, a pair of Dum Dums and members of Steps and Precious.

 There was a fair sprinkling of premiership footballers invited to the event by the singer's husband Jamie Redknapp. They included Rio Ferdinand, Jason McAteer, Dennis Wise, Paul Ince, and Frank Lampard.

 Ex-footie stars John Barnes, Ian Wright and Jamie's dad, West Ham manager, Harry Redknapp also joined in the fun.

 Louise's forthcoming long-player is released on July 31st through Chrysalis and it's preceded by the single '2 Faced' which is set to storm the Top Ten this weekend.

 The singer said of 'Elbow Beach': "Unlike my other records, this one truly represents the real me. I think it will give people a very accurate idea of who I am away from all those airbrushed photographs."
