Kylie Minogue reveals details of comeback album

Kylie Minogue has revealed she is to return to music with a new album in 2018.

The Australian popstar says the new album is inspired by “a little bit of heartbreak”, after she dramatically split from her fiancé earlier this year.

Her engagement to husband-to-be Joshua Sasse ended following accusations that Sasse had cheated on Kylie with another actress.

Now the 49-year-old says she’s ready to release “super positive and inspiring” new music.

The album, to be called Golden, will be her first original studio album since Kiss Me Once in 2014.

In 2015 she also released an album of Christmas songs called Kylie Christmas.

“I went to Nashville for two weeks and that became the album. I did a lot of work on the album before that but Nashville had a profound effect on me,” she told Biz On Sunday.

“The songs are very storytelling and story-based. It was so great to do things a little bit differently.”

“Most of it is super positive and inspiring, as a note to self as much as anything else. I’m feeling great right now.”

She added: “It was good. In the studio it’s a slightly weird concept to be spending seven, eight, nine hours in a room with people sometimes you don’t know.

“If you’re working with good people it’s the perfect place to deal with stuff.

“I did a lot of work on the album before that but Nashville had a profound effect on me.

“The songs are very storytelling and story-based. It was so great to do things a little bit differently.”

Kylie was reportedly devastated after splitting from her fiancé in February 2017.

They had been dating for almost two years after meeting on a US show Sasse stars in, where Kylie made a guest appearance.

Sasse had said the couple wouldn’t get married until same-sex marriage was legal in Australia, which happened at the end of 2017.

The pledge came true after the couple called off their engagement before marriage equality was introduced.

Minogue was vocal in her support of the “Say I Do Down Under” campaign.
