A stream of consciousness.
Kylie Minogue’s fourteenth studio album is a stream of consciousness.
The pop star has worked quietly on her forthcoming LP for several years now, and it’s likely to be her most honest release yet.
Earlier this year, Kylie revealed plans to drop the LP at some point in 2017 then embark on a tour. The lead single is thought to be produced by Sigala (“Easy Love,” “Sweet Lovin’”). He opened up to The Sun about his participation, and the overarching thematic scheme of her project – hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
“It’s a ’Spinning’ Around vibe. She wants people to be honest with her,” Sigala said of the ‘90s-sounding new tune. “I’m influenced a lot by the Nineties so it makes sense for me to work with her. It fitted really well.”
He adds: “It’s cool that it sounds throwback but it needs to sound modern as well to take Kylie’s career forward. It’s about waiting for somebody to tell you how they feel and being like, ‘Come on, let’s get it out in the open and stop messing around. Tell me what you’re waiting for.’
Kylie separated from ex-fiance Joshua Sasse last year after suspecting he cheated on her.
“After splitting from Joshua maybe that’s why she picked it because she wants people to be honest with her. It’s for her album, that’s the plan. Hopefully the next single.”
A separate source goes into detail about the LP. “Kylie’s album will give fans fly-on-the-wall access to what happened between her and Josh. She has gone into serious detail on some of the songs and it has helped her make sense of everything. It was obviously a very tough time but throwing herself into music has been an amazing help.”
It’s also reportedly her “most political” record yet, “with talk of tracks covering issues like LGBT rights.”
“Kylie just wants to make an album that will start conversations.”
In addition to Sigala, Kylie has tapped Girls Aloud hitmaker Brian Higgins and Guy Chambers.
