Kylie Minogue to release new album next year

Singer is recording re-worked versions of tracks for 25th anniversary LP

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

Music Week reports that the Australian pop star is currently in the studio and reworking some of her classic tracks for a compilation album that will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of her debut single ‘Locomotion’.

Minogue, who was at Abbey Road for the EMI New Music Sessions last night (November 10) to celebrate the studio’s 80th birthday, said:

I’ve been at Abbey Road for about two weeks in total. Not just for this, I’ve been working on a project for next year. Next year’s my 25th anniversary so we’ve been recording acoustic and orchestral versions of a number of my hits.

The singer had previously posted pictures of herself on her Twitter account taken at Abbey Road, and also posted a message today which read: “On a positive note… maybe I will upload a little song from last night… later!”

Kylie Minogue released her last album, ‘Aphrodite’, in 2010. The record, which was the follow-up to her 2007 effort ‘X’, was her eleventh studio LP.

Last month, meanwhile, it was announced that she would be given an honorary degree from Anglia Ruskin University to acknowledge her work raising awareness about breast cancer after battling it herself.
