The All the Lovers pop legend has teamed up with the producer for her forthcoming album Kiss Me Once, that features tracks including tracks Sexy Love, Sexercize and Les Sex - which is a lot of sex by our standards. Kylie explained: "Sia is executive producer with me, which is amazing and a little dream come true, and there was a certain point on the album where we had countless songs, and she said, 'we need some sex on there.. we need a hot song'. Next thing I know there's Sexy Love, Sexercize and Les Sex! And even looking at the album titles, trying to figure out what makes it on the album, I thought 'I can't really do that', and then I thought 'yeah, I really have to do that because they're all really great songs'. And I couldn't call them anything else, because that's what they are."

Kylie Minogue turns heads at surprise performance
Taking to the stage in a sparkling black mini-dress as she performed at a London pub on Thursday night, the diminutive pop princess debuted a brand new fringe and sleek bob hairstyle as she delighted her fans with a surprise performance.
Wearing a sleek, honey coloured wig as she rocked out at The Old Blue Last, the 45-year-old star flaunted her trim, dance honed pins in a flapper-style frock which she teamed with black and gold stilettos. She drew attention to her plump pout with a slick of ruby red lipstick and completed her bold look with a winged, smoky eye.
Here are videos from the performance:
Minogue matched the racy look to her raunchy appearance in her recently released Into The Blue music video, and has been striking seductive poses for the cover art of her sexually charged upcoming album.
Earlier on Thursday, she made a more casual appearance at Spotify's London office where she played an intimate, acoustic set. Speaking at the event, the Melbourne-born singer revealed her favourite sound is something a little saucy. ‘What’s my favourite noise? I can’t recreate it!’ she said, approaching the subject delicately. ‘It’s a pleasurable noise. I would have to say that elusive… I will leave it at that. I’m not necessarily saying if it’s coming from me or someone else, but THAT noise….’

She was playing the Valentine's Day event as a single woman, having split with her Spanish model Andres Velencoso at the end of last year. She said the day before: 'I don’t have a date for Valentine’s Day. I’ll be working, with people I love. But you know, what’s really exciting is when you don’t know what’s going to happen.'
IT’S NO SECRET KYLIE MINOGUE HAS BEEN BUSY IN THE STUDIO. THE GLOBAL ICON TAKES A BREAK FROM RECORDING WITH HER CAST OF COOL COLLABORATORS TO NARRATE HER LIFE BEHIND THE SCENES.
International pop star. Chart-topper. Television host. Humanitarian. Breast cancer survivor. Actress. Officer of the Order of the British Empire. The original goddess of pop has done it all, earning her a permanent seat in the global music Hall of Fame. But that doesn’t mean she has plans to quit anytime soon. This spring, the irrepressible icon is back with her twelfth studio album and a new season as a coach on the British edition of The Voice. While working with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Ariel Rechtshaid, Cutfather, and MNEK, Minogue traveled all over the globe, from New York to L.A. to London, to record. The first single, “Into The Blue,” from her forthcoming album, Kiss Me Once (available on March 18 from Warner Bros. Records/ Parlophone) has been heralded as a “euphoric return back to the dance floor.” If it’s Kylie calling, there’s no way we won’t be there.
