Kylie Minogue’s Anticipated New Album Tension Out Now Via BMG
Kylie Minogue’s highly-anticipated new album Tension – a record full of euphoric, empowered dance floor bangers and sultry pop cuts – is out now via BMG.
“Kylie’s gonna keep the summer going until December. We’re gonna be riding this high for as long as we possibly can.” – NPR All Songs Considered
“Kylie’s music possesses an intense physicality; energizing in a way that bypasses the head and appeals directly to the heart and body.” – Pitchfork
“On Tension, Kylie strides ahead on a full-blown electro pop mission” – Billboard
The critically-acclaimed record includes the global smash hit singles “Padam Padam” and the title track “Tension”. Released in May, “Padam Padam” quickly cemented its status as a global viral sensation and song of the summer with 157 million global streams, four weeks in the UK Top 10, Number 1 in the UK airplay chart, remixes by HAAi, Jax Jones and Absolute, and even calls for “Padam” to be added to the dictionary. “Tension” debuted in the UK Top 20 and Number 7 in the UK airplay chart in its first week of release, with TikTok users across the world similarly embracing the track.
Discussing Tension, Kylie says: “I started this album with an open mind and a blank page.”
“Unlike my last two albums there wasn’t a ‘theme’, it was about finding the heart or the fun or the fantasy of that moment and always trying to service the song. I wanted to celebrate each song’s individuality and to dive into that freedom. I would say it’s a blend of personal reflection, club abandon and melancholic high.”
