Kylie Minogue has recorded orchestral versions of her hit pop songs, and will perform them live before releasing the collection as an album, reports Sky News.
The Australian pop star - diminutive in stature but a giant of the pop industry - will perform some of her classics at Proms in the Park, in a slightly different format. She has re-worked hits like Can't Get You Out Of My Head, Better The Devil You Know, The Locomotion and I Should Be So Lucky for her new album, The Abbey Road Sessions, and they all take an orchestral arrangement.
The album will also feature the talents of Nick Cave; the moody Australian musician, with a powerful body of dark of seminal indie-rock, makes an interesting coupling with the bouncy, miniature pop icon that is Kyle Minogue. The pair will return to their track, ‘The murder ballad;’ the hit from 1996, which saw Cave's character kill Minogue with a blow to the head. Fans of hers will be able to get a sneak peak at the new versions of her songs on September 8 in London, with the BBC Symphony Orchestra as she headlines Proms in the Park in Hyde Park. The full album is out on October 29th, and will feature the previously unreleased track: Flower.
