You may need to sit down for this: Kylie Minogue's next album will include "pop dance music" but with "some variations on the theme".
The 'Some Kind Of Bliss' chanteuse dropped this bombshell in an interview with Now That's What I Call Music that arrived in an email earlier yesterday afternoon.
Asked if 'Timebomb' was an indication of where her new album was headed she said: "It's definitely a sign of where I'm heading. I love making pop dance music so that's our launch pad but as always, there will be some variations on the theme."
With recording of said album already started she continued: "'Timebomb' was a track I felt was the perfect song to be part of the K25 celebrations. So, we decided to make it one of our surprise uploads on Kylie.com! Not only was I super excited about the song and the video, but the surprise element felt absolutely appropriate."
As for the video, she picked a grey day in London because of its "gritty street edge", adding: "London will always be happening as far as music is concerned. We wanted to reflect that this is a tune made and recorded in London and reflect that in showing ultra cool London in the video."
