Kylie Minogue is back and she’s just dropped her new single Dancing.
In her first non-Christmas studio album since she released Kiss Me Once in March 2014, the pop princess said the new album Golden marks a milestone in her life.
Speaking on BBC Radio 2’s The Chris Evans Breakfast Show, she said: ‘I was a little bit fragile when I started working on this album.
Thank you so much to everyone for tuning in for the first play of #Dancing… 💗 … I am completely overwhelmed and sending out so much love.
The single is available at midnight tonight, when you can also pre-order my new album GOLDEN! ⏳🌟 pic.twitter.com/VX8iGBs6K7

‘I kind of processed that and I just thought it was a really good time to be honest – to work through everything and give a snapshot of where I am in my life.
‘It was very rewarding,’ she added.
‘The end of 2016 was not a good time for me’
She revealed a lot of the new album was recorded in Nashville and promises there’s more story to each song.
When asked what she learned while in Nashville, she said: ‘You need to work with a good group of people. Song writing can be a bit like therapy – you have to feel comfortable to talk about personal things.’

The album’s got a unique country feel to it, but she jokes she’s not going to be on a bale of hay in live shows.
Speaking to The Sun, she said the album helped her get over the heartbreak of her last relationship. She broke up with Joshua Sasse at the end of 2016.
She said: ‘The end of 2016 was not a good time for me.
‘So when I started working on the album in 2017 it was, in many ways, a great escape,’ she said.
