WATCH: Kylie Minogue - Skirt (Official Lyric Video & Dub Mix)
Here it is, the explosive new video from our indomitable pop goddess Kylie Minogue!
A peek at new music as she works on her 12th, as-yet-unfinished album and her debut with Jay-Z’s management company Roc Nation. The synth-heavy and dubstep-influenced track, co-written by The-Dream, who has collaborated on hits with Beyoncé and Britney Spears, was previewed in a set in Ibiza by its Scottish dance producer Nom De Strip, aka Chris Elliott, before being unveiled to the public on the eve of the singer’s recent 45th birthday. Minogue rose to fame as a young actress in Australian soap opera Neighbours, then scored a succession of bubblegum pop hits in the late-80s such as perennial favorite “I Should Be So Lucky”, before turning in a more indie direction in the 90s. The millennium saw Minogue reinvent herself once again, turning back to pop and setting the dance world alight with several hits and the help of some miniscule gold hot pants. Today’s stop-motion video was created from around 1000 stills by fellow Australian photographer and director Will Davidson, whose clients include Calvin Klein and Nike, with work published in V magazine, i-D and AnOther. Davidson shot the singer in her Los Angeles hotel room just last week in only three hours, as she wore clinging black Alexander Wang,Vanessa Bruno and vertiginous Jimmy Choo stilettos. “In 25 years I haven’t done anything like this,” says Minogue. “It was also really last minute and thrown together in a heartbeat. I love how Will’s shots have a rawness to them. They feel real, unprocessed and much like the viewer is there with me.”

“[The album will be] pop dance but with a few new flavors. Expect the unexpected! … Joining the Roc family has been an exciting whirlwind. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some producers who have been on my wish list for a number of years so it’s amazing! Roc Nation is such a dynamic company, combining many years of experience with a hungry young team. It makes for fireworks and I think that will be heard in the music.” -Kylie
