Kylie Minogue wants to go out dancing on new single
Kylie Minogue is back! The Australian pop queen made us wait for quite a while, but now that she is actually back at it, we forgive her. Kylie’s most recent record Kiss Me Once was released back in March 2014, with lead single ‘Into The Blue’ being released about four years ago this week. Although the Kiss Me Once era was not one of the most successful ones of her career, describing a Kylie comeback as exciting is an understatement. You know what is even more exciting? The sound of her new single ‘Dancing’, which she just premiered on BBC Radio 2!

Kylie’s upcoming album Golden was rumoured to be more stripped back and country inspired than we are used to from her. As for ‘Dancing’, this means that the verses are driven by an acoustic guitar, but the chorus is still dominated by an electronic pop beat. The arrangement is light and dreamy for this one and Minogue’s vocals are tender as usual. The chorus might be slightly repetitive, but the hook is so strong that it does not bother me in the slightest. Lyrically, ‘Dancing’ is not as shallow as it might seem on first listen. When Kylie sings ‘When I go out, I wanna go out dancing’, she is not just talking about a night out. Miss Minogue wants to keep dancing and performing until the day she ‘goes out’ forever. Well, if she keeps throwing heavenly, infectious little tunes like ‘Dancing’ at us, she can keep doing what she is doing for a while longer if you ask me!

Update: Kylie just premiered the Dolly Parton inspired, 70s retro video with a whole lot of line dancing going on! Oh and she is holding a guitar, but that’s not something we should be worried about…
