Kylie Minogue has been doing many things to celebrate her 25th year in the music industry, including an Anti-Tour, releasing timebombs for her twitter followers to unlock and there has been much talk about her new album which she recorded at Abbey Road. Finally a date and song list has been released.
Kylie The Abbey Road Sessions will be released on October 29.
According to Kylie.com, “the album features sixteen tracks, all radically reworked, spanning Kylie’s incredible 25 year career. The album was recorded in London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios with Kylie’s band and a full orchestra.
Other highlights of the album include a wonderfully poignant “Better The Devil You Know”, the ever-amazing “Confide In Me”, a sultry “On A Night Like This”, a joyous “All The Lovers”, the beautiful “Finer Feelings” and a version of “The Locomotion” which swaggers with true 1950’s panache.
Over all 16 tracks one thing becomes very clear – stripped of her high end pop production, the emotional resonance of many of Kylie’s songs has never been clearer, nor has her voice ever sounded better.”
The tracks that have been reworked are:
All The Lovers
On A Night Like This
Better The Devil You Know
Hand On Your Heart
I Believe In You
Come Into My World
Confide In Me
Can’t Get You Out Of My Head
Where The Wild Roses Grow (according to Kylie.com, Nick Cave re-recorded his vocal on this famous duet especially for the album.”)
I Should Be So Lucky
Never Too Late
Kylie will perform most of these songs when she headlines Proms In The Park, at Hyde Park, this Saturday.
Here’s The Abbey Road Sessions version of Finer Feelings
The album will be available in many different formats, including, digital, CD, Limited Edition Deluxe CD, and Limited 12″ vinyl with CD (only available at kylie.com). All these can be pre-ordered now.
That’s Entertainment! 🙂
