Kylie Minogue releases her critically acclaimed new album 'Golden' today on BMG. 'Golden' stands in the pantheon of the Australian pop star's career as one of her most personal albums to date, with every song co-written by Minogue. The songs on 'Golden' address mortality, family, love and loss in ways that only Kylie can: via the dance floor.
A project spanning multiple continents with an international list of collaborators, Golden was mainly created with African-German producer Sky Adams and a list of contributors including Jesse
Frasure, Eg White, Jon Green, Biff Stannard, Samuel Dixon, Danny
Shah and Lindsay
Rimes, and there's a duet with English singer Jack Savoretti. Her trip to Nashville involved working alongside two key writers, both with homes in the city. One was British-born songwriter Steve McEwan (whose credits include huge Country hits for Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney
and Carrie Underwood), and the other was Amy Wadge, another Brit (best known for her mega-selling work with Ed Sheeran).

"A shimmering, refreshingly authentic anti-breakup album that';s more about empowerment and resilience than it is about cradling a sorrowed soul" - Entertainment Weekly
"…her consistency as an album artist in a singles genre has afforded her a level of cultish adoration and critical seriousness bestowed upon few singers..." - Billboard
"An unexpected yet glistening ode to the timeless shimmer of the gilded woman at its center" - Entertainment Weekly
