Kylie Minogue DISCO album coverIt must’ve been strange for Kylie to return to dance music during lockdown, not least because she had to record and co-engineer the songs herself.

So how is it, the closest thing we’ll likely ever get to a DIY Kylie record?

Hot as.

If there’s one criticism to make, it’s that starting with its straightest shooter – sparkling single Magic – belies how varied the album gets. More than an account of guaranteed disco, funk and house moves, DISCO jumps through styles like it’s backstage of the catwalk: piano stabs on Real Groove, the choral New Wave of Say Something, sci-fi Daft Punk-y posturing on Supernova, the chattering beach party atmosphere of Monday Blues. A perfect sample platter for the restless.

DISCO by Kylie Minogue is out November 6 via Liberator Records.
