Kylie releases her brand new album ‘Kiss Me Once’ on Parlophone on March 17. The first single, the shimmeringly anthemic ‘Into The Blue’, has moved forward to March 9 after the track leaked online last weekend – generating a huge buzz on Twitter, and Popjustice instantly awarding it 9/10. The official video, which features actor Clement Sibony, will be revealed soon.
‘Kiss Me Once’ is Kylie’s first studio album since 2010’s ‘Aphrodite’, and her first since signing to Roc Nation Management. The album, a definite return to the dance floor after 2012’s ‘Abbey Road Sessions’, was executive produced by Kylie and Sia, who co-wrote the title track.
Kylie also teams up with Pharrell Williams (who wrote and produced ‘I Was Gonna Cancel’). Other producers include Ariel Rechtshaid (HAIM) on ‘If Only’, MNEK on ‘Feels So Good’, and Greg Kurstin on bonus track ‘Sleeping With The Enemy’.
Kylie said: “Making this album was quite a journey but I loved it! It was through a time in my life where there were a lot of changes and new beginnings. I’m thrilled with the response to “Into The Blue”, and I can’t wait for you hear the rest of the record!”
Kylie made a triumphant debut as a coach on The Voice UK recently, with The Guardian exclaiming that she “single-handedly revived the show” as it pulled in record viewing figures. She is also coaching on The Voice Australia, which began filming this year.
