Global pop icon Kylie Minogue continues to dominate 2023 with the release of her highly anticipated 16th studio album ‘Tension’.
Featuring the critically-acclaimed smash hit singles ‘Padam Padam’, and the title track ‘Tension’, the record sees Minogue team up with a stellar cast of writers and collaborators including Biff Stannard (Spice Girls), Duck Blackwell (Louis Tomlinson), Jon Green (5SOS), Jackson Foote (Zara Larsson), Lostboy (Griff), Peter Rycroft (Dua Lipa), and fellow recording artist Kamille, to produce a striking collection of hyper electro-pop bops, that stand shoulder to shoulder with her already legendary, and extensive back catalogue.
Discussing the origins, and overall concept of the record, Kylie says via a press release: “I started this album with an open mind and a blank page. Unlike my last two albums there wasn’t a ‘theme’, it was about finding the heart or the fun or the fantasy of that moment and always trying to service the song. I wanted to celebrate each song’s individuality and to dive into that freedom. I would say it’s a blend of personal reflection, club abandon and melancholic high.”
To celebrate the projects release, Minogue has opened a special ‘Tension’ themed pop-up shop in London’s West End, stocked full of exclusive merchandise and products curated personally by the singer herself – making it a must-do experience for all Kylie fans, collectors and music lovers!
The special store, which is housed in one of the British capital’s most iconic locations at 55 Regent Street, is open to members of the public from Friday, September 22nd to Sunday, September 24 from 10am-6pm each day.
