To celebrate the release of Kylie’s eleventh album PORTER chats to the Pop Princess and her Executive Producer Stuart Price in their New York recording studio...


Congratulations Kylie, studio album number 11. How does that make you feel?


It is kind of unbelievable. I thought the tenth album, X, was a benchmark but this one has just been amazing. I wouldn’t care what number you called it. It’s been the most amazing experience.


What was it about this album and this project that made you want to do it differently to before?


Well for me this was a first, to have an Executive Producer. The idea (to do it differently) was at the forefront of my mind on this album because I’d had a little niggle with the previous two albums. But the added reason that all of this came around was because of our dear friend Jake Shears from the Scissor Sisters, who was working in this very studio, as I had started recording my album in various studios around the world. He praised Stuart highly and loves me dearly, and basically pestered me and said “you’ve got to do this, it’ll be so amazing!”, so I’ve got much to thank Jake for.


Do you regard this album as a return to the dance floor? Or did you never leave?


It’s been described as a return to the dance floor; I don’t think I ever totally left but it is a return to form I’d say.


AUTUMN.10 PORTER MAGAZINE 7


The goddess of love, beauty and sexuality… perhaps the three most perfect words to describe Kylie Minogue and arguably her most aptly titled album yet.
