The megastar worked on the album alongside her long-time collaborator Richard ‘Biff’ Stannard and Duck Blackwell.
She also collaborated with DJ Oliver Heldens for one of the tracks, 10 out of 10.
Announcing the album in a press release, Kylie said: ‘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 to dive into that freedom. I would say it’s a blend of personal reflection, club abandon and melancholic high.’
