Minogue appears on a new reworking of ‘Starstruck‘, the original of which came out last month after it was announced that Years & Years would be continuing as an Alexander solo project.
Upon the collaborative new version’s release last Friday (May 21), Alexander said it had been “quite literally a dream come true” to work with Minogue. “Kylie is an icon who has inspired me since I first started making music,” he explained, “so this feels out [of] this world.”
Taking to TikTok earlier today (May 25), the Years & Years frontman shared a video of himself performing Minogue’s hit 2002 single ‘Love At First Sight’ on a piano at his home. He then swiftly segued into a section of ‘Starstruck’.
“u guysssss I’m so happy u love the @kylieminogue remix of #starstruck,” he wrote as the caption. “keep streaming & downloading & I hope u like my #mashup !!”
Alexander previously described Years & Years’ latest single as being “about the rush you get when you’re with somebody you’re really into, it’s about holding onto a good feeling and not letting it go”.
The singer’s team-up with Kylie Minogue comes after he joined forces with Elton John at this month’s BRIT Awards for a cover of Pet Shop Boys’ ‘It’s A Sin’. A studio version of the pair’s take on the 1987 classic was also released, with proceeds going towards the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
