Kylie Minogue has a new album, and to me that is as if Marilyn Monroe had resuscitated, “Golden” is the name, and the first track “Dancing” is already being promoted. Of course being such a big fan of this Diva, I had to share with all of you this wonderful single.
Golden is the fourteenth studio album by the Australian singer. It was released on 6 April 2018 by BMG Rights Management. A large portion of the record was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, where she found new inspiration with its music, and also recorded some material in London and Los Angeles, California. The album was co-produced by Minogue alongside a variety of producers including Ash Howes, Richard “Biff” Stannard, Sky Adams, Alex Smith, and Mark Taylor, among others. Each track was co-written by Minogue, making it her first album since Impossible Princess (1997) to do so.
Musically, Golden is a pop record that is heavily influenced by country and dance music. Described by Minogue as one of her most personal efforts, the lyrics encompass a wide range of themes including failed relationships, death, dancing and having fun. Upon its release, Golden received generally positive reviews from music critics, a majority of whom commended Minogue’s honesty and personality through her songwriting skills, as well as its catchiness. However, critics were divided by the composition and her experimentation with country music. Commercially, the album entered the top twenty in several markets, including Australia, Belgium, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom; it became the singer’s first album to peak at number one in both her native Australia and United Kingdom, her first since Fever in 2001.
