International Pop superstar Kylie Minogue celebrates her enormously successful North American ‘Aphrodite Live’ tour with the June 7th release of two brand new EPs, “Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love)” and “Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love)” – The Remixes. One of the most energetic, dancefloor-ready songs from Kylie’s globally acclaimed album Aphrodite, “Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love)” is a massive fan favorite and another summer club anthem in the making. EP1 features the album version, a vibrant live version recorded at the O2 Arena in London, veteran studio maven Pete Hammond’s Remix, Basto’s Major Mayhem Edit and a huge treat for the Kylie faithful, a brand new unreleased track, “Silence,” which was co-written with Aphrodite producer Stuart Price. EP2 consists of five different remixes including the NERVO Hands Up Extended Club Mix, remixed by Australian twin sisters NERVO, the DJ/producer duo who co-wrote the song for Kylie. The genesis for these EP’s was a lyric video that Kylie placed on her YouTube channel as a thank you to fans for the support of the song during the live shows on the European leg of the tour. The music bed contains a special retro-flavored remix done by Pete Hammond, an engineer who worked on some of Kylie’s earliest hits, and has become highly sought after by her international fanbase. Kylie wrapped the U.S. leg of the tour on May 22nd at the legendary Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. The North American leg, her most extensive outing in the region to date, began on April 28th in Montreal and featured shows in 11 U.S. cities including a 3-night stint at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Kylie then played to a 10,000 person crowd at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and visited three cities in Mexico. Aphrodite Live’s spectacular production wowed fans and critics at each stop along the way.

I love this Pete Hammond remix of the track … it’s such an old skool throw back to that early Kylie sound that we all fell in love with in the late 80′s. I would buy these EPs for that remix alone … the fact that we get an entirely new song written and produced by Stuart Price is just the ICING on the cake:
I have loved this Aphrodite era of Kylie music … so I’m really bummed that it is coming to an end. Kylie has said in recent interviews that she is not planning to record a new album anytime soon so … we have to enjoy the new Kylie music we are getting right now. These EPs will be released next week! Can’t wait!!
