Kylie Minogue Treats Fans To 4 Free New Songs
Kylie Minogue is currently on the road in Europe for her Kiss Me Once Tour. But if you didn’t get tickets or can’t make any of the shows during the European and Australian trek, Kylie has a gift for you. Four to be exact.
She teamed with Mexican producer Fernando Garibay — whose fingerprints were all over Lady Gaga’s Born This Way album — and revealed four new songs that appear in the Sleepwalker short film that accompanies the show, and is directed by Kylie’s buddy and fashion designer William Baker.
The tracks on Sleepwalker/Kylie + Garibay are more experimental than we usually hear from the pop queen, but are still fun new offerings. “Glow” embraces atmospheric gusts that shadow the minimalistic synth notes found in the tune, while “Wait’s” breathy vocals get a punch from the driving marching band beat.
“Chasing Ghosts” features chanting in its intro, though the voices almost sound like Duran Duran member Simon Le Bon might be assisting on vocals. The most organic offering in the collection has a reggae-ish vibe, but “Break this Heartbreak” is the complete opposite, living in a futuristic/space age disco that transcends any of the other synth or electronic elements found within this compilation.
The tunes are available for free download on Minogue’s SoundCloud page.
