Your Disco Needs You the album?
Kylie Minogue has announced the release date for her brand new album, DISCO.
The legendary pop princess will return to her disco and dance-pop roots for her 15th collection, which arrives 6 November. The album’s lead single, Say Something, premieres 23 July (tomorrow!) on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 show.
DISCO will be Kylie’s first album since 2018’s country-leaning Golden, which became her sixth chart-topping album in the UK, and her first since 2010’s Aphrodite. Golden’s first two singles, Dancing and Stop Me From Falling, received universal critical acclaim.
According to Amazon, the deluxe edition of DISCO will be 16 tracks long.
In a May interview with GQ, Kylie said the album will have a “grown-up disco” sound. “[It’s] difficult even for me to explain,” she said. “But even grown-ups need some pure pop fun.”
She discussed the genre’s recent revival with smash hits from Dua Lipa (Don’t Start Now), Doja Cat (Say So) and Lady Gaga (Rain On Me), saying: “It’s all cyclical, right?
“I loved disco as an eight-year-old, so it’s been a long love affair. I’m loving the modern interpretations of the genre now. There’s a lot of early 2000s love around at the moment. Both feel like good times for me, so I’m channelling that into this record.”

Kylie also revealed that she’s been recording new music from her living room during lockdown, telling PA: “I’ve been really busy, setting up a home studio (AKA, my lounge room!) and learning so much about remote recording.
“It’s been a steep learning curve for all the team as there are technical obstacles to navigate but I’m so thankful to be able to continue work on my album in this way. I’ve been riding the emotional wave along with the rest of the world, but creativity has been a big help.”
Since Golden, Kylie has achieved her seventh number one record with her fourth major greatest hits album, Step Back in Time, and collaborated with Swedish songstress Tove Lo on electropop banger, Really Don’t Like U.
She also launched her own rosé wine range – as if we couldn’t stan any harder?
