The song is taken from ‘DISCO: Guest List Edition’, a deluxe version of Kylie’s 15th studio album, 2020’s ‘Disco’. Upon its release, NME‘s Nick Levine gave the album a four-star review, describing it as her “most consistent and enjoyable album in a decade”.
Ware’s gig last night marked the first of two dates at O2 Brixton Academy, with the second scheduled to take place tonight (May 29). Both are part of the singer-songwriter’s ‘What’s Your Pleasure?’ tour in support of her 2020 album of the same name.
The jaunt – which will come to a close next month with dates in Halifax, Glasgow and Edinburgh – was previously moved from April 2021 to December due to ongoing concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. It was then rescheduled again in February, finally kicking off last Thursday (May 26) in Bristol.

Minogue’s performance came on the same day as her 54th birthday. To celebrate, Ware led the Brixton crowd in singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to the pop star, and she had a birthday cake and candles brought out for the moment. You can watch the birthday sing-a-long below.

Released last November, ‘DISCO: Guest List Edition’ features high-profile collaborators and additional new songs, plus remixes and extended mixes courtesy of Basement Jaxx, Purple Disco Machine, Syn Cole and more. It includes the previously released Years & Years collaboration ‘A Second to Midnight’ as well as new song ‘Can’t Stop Writing Songs About You’ with disco legend Gloria Gaynor.
Speaking about the show, Minogue said: “I’ll be forever grateful for the experience & the friends I made on Neighbours. We had no idea how big the show would become and how passionately viewers would take it to heart. Pure love.”
Meanwhile, Jessie Ware will perform at Glastonbury later this month. The singer joins the line-up for The Park, a “wonderland of genre-defying, synapse-sparking dionysian pleasurement”.
