Kylie Minogue has spoken of her "joy" to be focusing on a new album.

After an incredible career spanning decades to date, the pop star has revealed it can be challenging to "find that next sound” but says she is “ready for new music”.

It's reported that she has been working on a new album for the last "few months” which she is focused on “for the rest of the year”.

“I can’t reveal what the sound is yet, but it is all super exciting,” she told the PA news agency.

“It’s always a challenge to find that next sound, find the songs which not only stand on their own but resonate as part of an album.

“Then I start to think about the visual creative and that is the next challenge.

“I’ve been making albums now for over 30 years but each one is a different journey. Where I’m at in my life right now, I’m ready for new music.

“My last album was mostly made during lockdown so to be back in the studio with some of my favourite people is simply a joy.”

Kylie made history last year by becoming the first female artist to top the UK album chart over five consecutive decades.

Her wine brand is going from strength to strength too, selling more than seven million bottles of Kylie Minogue Wines since 2020.

She has now launched a 0% alcohol version.

She said: “For those who don’t partake in alcohol, the sober curious or for those who just fancy a non-alcoholic drink on occasions, this is just perfect.

“I’ve shared a champagne glass of the 0% sparkling rose with a group of friends and we had that same celebratory feeling as we would with alcoholic bubbly.

“It is definitely a festive drink, but I imagine it being part of so many occasions. Breakfast bubbly, after work wind down, family picnic, New Year’s Eve celebration even.

“When you’re on tour, the wind down after a show is really important. Your adrenaline is off the charts, you’re tired and wired and have just shared an amazing experience on stage with your fellow performers and crew.

“I think this wine would be a perfect option for after show drinks.”

Roll on Dry January!
