LONDON (Reuters) - Australian pop star Kylie Minogue returns to the music scene in June with new single “All the Lovers,” the first track from her album “Aphrodite.”
It is the diminutive singer’s first album since “X” in 2007 and her 11th studio album overall.
“The single was one of the last tracks to be written for the album. As I was recording it I knew that ‘All the Lovers’ had to be the first single; it sums up the euphoria of the album perfectly,” the 41-year-old said in a statement.
“It gives me goose-bumps, so I’m really excited to hear what everyone thinks of it.”
According to a statement from her record label Parlophone, part of EMI, Minogue celebrates “her dance-floor roots” on the album, which features Stuart Price as executive producer.
The list of songwriters includes Minogue, Price, Calvin Harris, Jake Shears, Nerina Pallot and Keane’s Tim Rice-Oxley. All the Lovers hits shelves on June 28 and Aphrodite on July 5.
Minogue, a regular chart-topper in her native Australia and adopted home Britain, has sold more than 60 million records, but she has yet to crack the key market in the United States where she toured for the first time in 2009.
The singer was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 but she returned to performing after recovering from surgery and chemotherapy. In a 2008 world tour she visited more than 20 countries.
