Kylie Minogue has revealed that she wants to release a new album next year.

The Australian singer, who will release a greatest hits compilation celebrating a quarter of a century in the music industry called 'K25' later this year, told Metro that she had begun work on new material and hoped to have finished her new LP in time for a 2013 release.

She said:

I have started on new music already. It should be ready for 2013.


The singer, who is working on the material at Abbey Road Studios, also hinted that she would be roping in some big-name guests for the album, which will be her 12th studio effort and the follow-up to her 2010 LP 'Aphrodite'. Although she refused to reveal any names, she promised it would be "really exciting and different".

She also said that she had found working at Abbey Road inspiring due to its history and connections with bands such as The Beatles, adding: "I thought, 'How much difference can a studio make?' but it is a beautiful studio. The sound is just gorgeous – you know you are on hallowed ground."

In December last year, Minogue's 2001 single 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' was named as the most-played song of the last 10 years. The track came top of PRS For Music's poll after receiving the most airplay and live covers over the past decade, beating competition from Britney Spears' 'Toxic' and Robbie Williams' 'Angels'.

Written by performer turned songwriter Cathy Dennis, 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' was originally turned down by S Club 7 and Sophie Ellis-Bextor before being picked up as the lead single for Kylie's 2001 album 'Fever'.
