Kylie Minogue is on track to release her 15th studio record later this year, announcing the arrival of Disco this morning.
The news was shared on Minogue’s Twitter account, which saw the singer announce her forthcoming record alongside a brief audio and visual teaser.
“Are you waiting for me to SAY SOMETHING???,” the artist asked. “My new album DISCO is released November 6th and will be available to pre-order from Thursday morning at 00:01 BST.”
When fed into an audio recognition device such as Shazam, the audio in the clip is revealed to be noted as a track “Say Something”, alongside album artwork indicating this will be Minogue’s next single. The Sun later reported that the single will in fact be released on July 23rd.

News of a new album from Minogue was first hinted at earlier this year, when she revealed to The Independent that she had been working on a new record from her home during lockdown.
“I’ve been really busy, setting up a home studio (AKA, my lounge room!) and learning so much about remote recording,” she explained. “It’s been a steep learning curve for all the team as there are technical obstacles to navigate but I’m so thankful to be able to continue work on my album in this way.
“I’ve been riding the emotional wave along with the rest of the world, but creativity has been a big help.”
The arrival of Disco in November will serve as Minogue’s first new album since the release of Golden back in 2018. While the latter featured more of a country pop sound, the title of her forthcoming record indicates that the singer’s comments regarding an album of “grown-up disco” appear to be true.
“I loved disco as an eight-year-old, so it’s been a long love affair,” Minogue told GQ in May. “I’m loving the modern interpretations of the genre now.”
