Kylie Minogue's new album is pop music ''with a different twist''.

The 45-year-old singer is working on her 12th studio album and although she remains tight lipped about details of her forthcoming release, she is changing her image from ''girl next door'' to something more edgy.

She told the Italian edition of Grazia magazine: ''I can't really say anything about the new album, some things I don't even know. We haven't even chosen a name yet. I can say though that it's going to be completely different. It's still pop music, but with a different twist.

''Throughout the years I've been called the girl next-door or a light version of Madonna, but those are just labels and I'm pretty sure after the new record they will give me a new one.''

Kylie - who parted ways with her manager Terry Blamey in January 2013 is now signed to Roc Nation - is reported to have worked with producers including Pharrell Williams, Darkchild, Sia and Jay-Z for the upcoming album.
