EARLIER // SEPTEMBER 6:
Kylie Minogue will re-release her Christmas record before pursuing the next studio album.
Bittersweet news for fans of Australia's pop princess. Minogue confirms she's updating 2015's Kylie Christmas with a couple more festive tracks before turning her attention to the next LP. "We've got some really, really good new additions to the Christmas album for this year," Kylie told news.com.au.
We'll take her word for it, but what about that followup to 2014's Kiss Me Once? According to the "Million Miles" crooner, it's in the beginning stages.
"I have started work on new material, the way the year's panned out I won't have that much time to work on it but my brain's working overtime," she said. "I'm so keen to get what's in my brain out and turn it into what I hear in my head, make that a reality. So new music is really, consistently on my mind. I've opened the door and stepped into the room but I've yet to spend as much time there as I look."
One person she opened that door with is longtime collaborator Robbie Williams. The two recorded a song together 16 years ago titled "Kids," and they're finally crafting a followup though it's unclear whether it will land on his forthcoming record or hers.
“Where it’s going to go I couldn’t tell you, but it’s very good,” says Kylie.
Here's to hoping it's not a "Jingle Bells" remix.
