Kylie Minogue has confirmed her 15th studio album is in the works but she ‘won’t be doing’ country again.
It’s been nearly two years since the Aussie pop star released her last studio album ‘Golden’ where the singer delved into the world of country music.
And since the release of the album – and unforgettable performances at Brighton Pride and Glastonbury – fans have eagerly been waiting the arrival of her next album.
Now, while speaking with CNBC International TV, Kylie confirmed she is working on her 15th studio album and revealed she won’t be doing country again.
She said: “I’ve already started work in the studio. I don’t know quite what it is yet, but we feel like, ‘That’s good, that’s good, this is the direction we’re heading’.
“It’s probably too early to say what it is, but I’m very excited. I won’t be doing [country] again, but certainly what I learnt during that period will stay with me, however, songwriting pans out in the future.”
Kylie also opened up about where the country element came from after spending two weeks in Nashville.
“I certainly didn’t see that country element coming, but I loved every second of it,” she continued.
“I got to spend two weeks in Nashville, I was fully focused, I barely did sightseeing or shopping or anything. I ate, sleep and wrote. It was all about music.
“Some of the lessons I learnt there, either by being actively engaged in trying to learn more about songwriting, or just by osmosis, there’s something about Nashville that just kinda seeps into you.”
