STRAIGHT UP! KYLIE’S BACK!

The Australian pop pixie releases her first single for new label Parlophone in June...

Kylie Minogue will release a new single ‘Spinning Around’ through her new label Parlophone on June 12.

Penned by ’80s favourite Paula Abdul, best known for her 1989 UK top five hit ‘Straight Up’, it will mark the first new material from Kylie since her single ‘Breathe’ in 1998. The track is said to deal with the break-up of Abdul‘s 17-month marriage, and is something of an ‘anti-men disco tune’, claims the UK’s Daily Star newspaper.

Kylie signed to Parlophone last year after parting company with deConstruction. Poor sales of her eponymous 1997 album was said to be to blame.

The Australian singer has been working with Robbie Williams and house act Brothers In Rhythm during sessions for her new LP. No release date has been set for the album, and it is unclear if any of the collaborations will appear as singles.

The pint-sized siren will make a return to the stage with an appearance at the G.A.Y. club at London WC1 Astoria on June 10.
