Last month we learned that Kylie Minogue is planning a bunch of exciting things for her 25th anniversary this year in the music biz but today we learn that she is already working on her 26th year in music. Kylie has revealed that she is currently at work on a new album of new material that should be ready for release in 2013. I understand Kylie is planning the release of orchestral versions of some of her classic songs this year … but we now know to look to next year for a new collection of NEW songs!
Kylie Minogue has revealed that she wants to release a new album next year. The Australian singer, who will release a greatest hits compilation celebrating a quarter of a century in the music industry called ‘K25′ later this year, told Metro that she had begun work on new material and hoped to have finished her new LP in time for a 2013 release. She said: I have started on new music already. It should be ready for 2013″. The singer, who is working on the material at Abbey Road Studios, also hinted that she would be roping in some big-name guests for the album, which will be her 12th studio effort and the follow-up to her 2010 LP ‘Aphrodite’. Although she refused to reveal any names, she promised it would be “really exciting and different”. She also said that she had found working at Abbey Road inspiring due to its history and connections with bands such as The Beatles, adding: “I thought, ‘How much difference can a studio make?’ but it is a beautiful studio. The sound is just gorgeous – you know you are on hallowed ground.”
Wee!! The promise of new Kylie music is REALLY very good news, y’all. For the past 25 years, Kylie has consistently delivered the goods. Her most recent albums, Aphrodite and X especially, have been FANTASTIC collections of Pop songs … I am really very excited by what Kylie has in store for us next. I know that 2013 sounds like a lifetime away right now but it’ll be here sooner than we think. At least we have the forthcoming 25th Anniversary release of classic hits reimagined in orchestral form to look forward to this year. Whooooop!
