Kylie Minogue announces single 'Into The Blue', new album for 2014
Come on, do the locomotion... or something, because Australian pop star Kylie Minogue is prepping a new single and album for 2014. Minogue's Kelly Sheehan-penned track "Into The Blue" will drop on March 16, according to NME.
The new song will be a lead-in to Minogue's yet-to-be titled 12th studio album, which will then drop later this year.
"2013 was a year of big change, planning and preparation for me and I'm so excited that 2014 is finally here so I can share this new music," Minogue said in a statement. "'Into The Blue' is really special to me as it encapsulates a lot of what I've been feeling -- I can't wait for it to be out there."
Little is known about Minogue's new album, though it has been confirmed that she's collaborated in the studio with Pharrell Williams, Greg Kurstin (Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger"), MNEK and Ariel Rechtshaid (Haim, Days Are Gone).
"Into The Blue" and the new Minogue album will be the new The Voice UK coach's first studio effort since 2010's Aphrodite, which spawned dance singles such as "All the Lovers," "Get Outta My Way" and "Better Than Today." However, the record as a whole only peaked at No. 19 on the Billboard 200.
Though one of the biggest acts in the UK and her home country, Minogue is largely a second-tier pop act in the United States. She is best known here for her 1987 hit "Locomotion" and her spacey 2000s track "Can't Get You Out Of My Head."
