It’s been over four years since the arrival of the UK Gold winning album Kiss Me Once, leaving fans eager for Kylie Minogue’s latest album Golden release. Golden is Minogue’s 14th studio album, marking the latest installment in her career spanning 30 years of album releases. Although the entirety of Golden was not officially released until today, the album’s lead single “Dancing” was made available earlier this year on Jan. 19, 2018.
Although the entirety of Golden was not officially released until today, the album’s lead single “Dancing” was made available earlier this year on January 19, 2018. Minogue herself has commented that the album features a lot of “synth-pop dance songs” that fans have come to expect from her. However, at the suggestion of her A&R record label manager, Minogue decided to branch out from her usual style and incorporate a bit of country style into Golden’s soundtrack. Although Minogue worked on the soundtrack for Golden for quite some time, she was immediately inspired by her trip to Nashville back in 2017, which lasted for close to two weeks. Despite the shortness of her visit, she recorded four songs within that time period. Using the country inspiration and bringing it back into her world, Minogue’s latest album has crossed both pop and country genres, marking her as a “Dolly Parton standing on the dance floor”.
The tracks of Golden tell a story and seem to be some of the most authentic music that Minogue has written in a long time. Kylie spent a lot of time writing songs “without intention” before Golden’s release, which resulted in a cathartic process which allowed her to pour her full heart and soul into the music. I think that Golden is Minogue’s best album yet, but you don’t have to take my word for it.
