For months, Kylie Minogue has been teasing us with the promise of a new album before the end of 2017, and it seems her new label has just one request: make it a “big, classic Kylie pop record.”
BMG President Alexi Cory-Smith told Music Week that Kylie had recently joined their roster.
“We want to make a great, big, classic Kylie pop record,” she said.
“Thirty years she’s been in the business, and she’s better than ever before.
“There’s so many different opportunities and with our reach into multimedia the possibility of making a documentary or book with her – it’s all possible. She’s just the ultimate artist.”
Kylie confirmed last September that she’d started working on new material, including a new duet with Robbie Williams recorded last year, and a new album would be coming in 2017.
“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 at the time.
“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.”
Last month, Kylie performed two campy Christmas concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
And two weeks ago, the singer posted a photo of a microphone to her Instagram with the caption: “So, yeah….. this is happening.”
We can’t wait!
