Kylie is spending 2012 commemorating and celebrating her 25 years in the music industry. She has done an anti tour, has been releasing photos of her taken over the last 25 years and on the 25th of each month, she is getting fans to ‘tweetunlock’ special videos (ie. the mystery tweet unlocks after a 10,000 retweets).
Her latest tweetunlock opened today. It is a special video mix of her very first single Locomotion (this week marks 25 years since its release). Kylie tweeted (@kylieminogue) about the song, “
#KylieLocomotion – did u know the 1st time I performed Locomotion I was not signed to a record company?”
The special Locomotion video begins with the original 1987 film clip and continues with the many different versions over the years. Check out the video:
The final part of the Locomotion is filmed in 2012. Kylie confirmed on her twitter account, “YES, final part of http://kylie.com/tweettounlock/ IS a sneak peek of Locomotion from The Abbey Road Sessions :)”
The Abbey Road Sessions is Kylie’s new take on some of her old classics. “With Production and Arrangements by Steve Anderson, Colin Elliot and Cliff Masterson , Kylie, her band and String section re-interpret some of her best loved songs recorded in the hallowed Studio 2 at Abbey Road”.
