Gay pop icon Kylie Minogue is preparing to release a new single in September.
It was announced today (28 August) that the Australian, loved by gays and straights alike, will release a studio version of ‘Flower’.
The ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’ singer performed the ballad during her 2008 X tour but the song never made it onto the dance-heavy album.
According to UK Mix, the track will be part of a record celebrating Minogue’s 25th anniversary in the music industry.
Recorded in the legendary Abbey Road Studios in late 2011, it will reportedly be an orchestral take on the much-loved fan favorite.
‘Flower’ follows the release of previous K25 single Timebomb which stormed to the top of the US Hot Dance Club Songs chart despite only moderate success worldwide.
It is expected Minogue will sing Flower while headlining the BBC’s Prom in the Park concert in Hyde Park on 8 September.
Speaking to press, British broadcaster and Proms host Sir Terry Wogan said: ‘To have the Princess of Pop herself, Kylie Minogue, performing in Hyde Park promises to make the concert an unforgettable spectacle.’
Flower will be released on 25 September.
