Kylie Minogue ahead of schedule with new album recording

Eight songs reportedly already recorded for record

Kylie Minogue is reportedly ahead of schedule with the recording of the new album, with eight songs already recorded.

The Australian singer recently surprised executives at her record label, EMI, by submitting the new material – despite it not being due until much later in 2010, claims the Daily Star.

According to an anonymous source quoted by the tabloid the singer has recorded eight “upbeat” songs helmed by Madonna producer Stuart Price. Although eight songs were done the source said there was still “some way to go” before the album was complete.

Minogue‘s spokesperson revealed that N-Dubz had submitted songs for a possible collaboration – but there were no plans for a hook-up yet.

The new album will be the singer’s first since 2007’s ‘X’.
