Kylie Minogue announced that her new album “Tension” will be out Sept. 22 via BMG. Kylie tweeted: “Baby break the tension ….. my brand new album TENSIONwill be yours on 22nd September! The first single PADAM PADAM is coming soon!”
The album, Kylie’s first since 2020’s Disco, is described as a blend of “personal reflection, club abandon and melancholic high.” Several of the tracks of “Tension” are produced and co-written by her frequent collaborator Richard “Biff” Stannard and “Disco” contributor Duck Blackwell.
Minogue said in a statement: “I started this album with an open mind and a blank page. Unlike my last two albums there wasn’t a ‘theme,’ it was about finding the heart or the fun or the fantasy of that moment and always trying to service the song. I wanted to celebrate each song’s individuality and dive into that freedom … I loved being back in the studio with my collaborators but was also able to benefit from remote recording, which we have all got used to – my mobile studio never left my side for a year and a half! The album is a mix of songs I have written and songs which really spoke to me. Making this album helped me navigate challenging times and celebrate the now. I hope it accompanies listeners on their own journeys and becomes part of their story.”
