Kylie Minogue has admitted that recording her new album was difficult.

The Aussie singer, who can currently be seen on BBC One's The Voice alongside Tom Jones, will.i.am and the Kaiser Chiefs' Ricky Wilson, has told The Sun newspaper that her new record "wasn't an easy road".

She said: "I actually didn't know where I was going or what the future held at the end of 2012. There's been a lot of change, this album is about taking the plunge and embracing the future and not holding on to things from the past."

Last year Kylie announced she had signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation management. By signing with Roc Nation, it's thought that Kylie is trying to finally crack the US market – where she has struggled to reach the same levels of success she's had in the UK and her native Australia.

"It wasn't the easiest road but signing with Roc Nation, spending a lot of time in America and doing The Voice gave me a challenge and I needed that to feel reinvigorated", she added.

The singer will release 'Into The Blue' on March 16, a track on which she has worked with Kelly Sheehan, who has in the past worked with Mary J Blige, Beyonce and Rita Ora. An album will follow later in the year. Producers on the album include Greg Kurstin, Pharrell Williams, MNEK and Ariel Rechtshaid. The latter recently co-produced Haim's debut 'Days Are Gone'.
