Kylie Minogue is working on her fifteenth studio album during lockdown, says BMG president Alistair Norbury

Kylie's label boss also gave updates on the upcoming albums from Natalie Imbruglia, Katie Melua and Texas.

Kylie Minogue is continuing to work on her upcoming fifteenth studio album during lockdown, according to the president of her record label BMG.

Alistair Norbury spoke to Music Week about how the label's acts are continuing to record during the global pandemic - and it seems Kylie is getting musically creative.

"Kylie Minogue is learning to use [music software] Logic", said the label boss. "She's got herself a home studio and decided that, if there's one thing she can do during this time, it's to learn to engineer and record her own vocals.

"So with some Zoom lessons and plenty of input from [BMG VP, A&R] Jamie Nelson, Kylie's learning to get herself to a place where she can be creative during this time."

Prior to lockdown, Kylie was working with German producer Mousse T and Italian DJ Alex Gaudino, and has also been in the studio with French producer Mirwais, famous for his work with Madonna. Norbury also confirmed in the interview that more songwriting is happening remotely during lockdown for Kylie.

BMG's president also gave updates on upcoming albums by Kylie's labelmates Natalie Imbruglia, Katie Melua and Texas.

While it was confirmed Natalie's first album of original material in over a decade has been pushed back to 2021, work continues on recording it remotely, and eight songs have so far been completed.

Recording has finished on Katie Melua's eighth record - set for later in 2020 - and she is mixing it remotely. There's also a new album to come this year from Scottish group Texas, with Sharleen Spiteri currently mastering the tracks during isolation, according to Norbury.

Looking forward to these new releases: Kylie of course but am a huge fan of TEXAS so cannot wait...Katie Melua makes me fall asleep so i won't buy her new release but excited about Nathalie Imbruglia...i didn't know she has plan to release a new album...yeah...



I hope this comes out sometime soon. If she can pull off another #1 UK record, I believe she will be the first artist to have #1s in these five consecutive decades.

Hope its better than her orevious ones.... She aint relevant like the modern acts eg duaxlipa arianna etc

2 consecutive No.1 albums in the last 2 years proves otherwise. Anyway she making music and us fans are very excited about that.




Are you saying that because she is not young ? Kylie has always kept her music fresh sounding. When Arianna is 50 I hope she doesn't get discarded from people like you.




With the right songwriters and the right hit, she can be relevant again, even at her age. Don't forget that Cher came out with "Believe" at the age of 52, and it turned her to be extremely relevant again all over the world. We can only pray for Kylie to get another "Can't Get You Out of My Head" hit, because she deserve it! She just needs to make better decisions in her music career and work with the right people.
