Kylie releases new video ahead of hugely-anticipated album

September 22 will see the release of Kylie’s brand new studio album, Tension, a record of euphoric, empowered dance floor bangers and sultry pop cuts.  In the meantime, enjoy “Padam Padam.”

Shot in L.A. and directed by Sophie Muller, the video sees a powerful and otherworldly temptress-goddess Kylie dressed head to toe in red and flanked by dancers of various genders and expressions.

Tension is eleven tracks of unabashed pleasure-seeking, seize-the-moment, joyful pop tunes. The hypnotic electro of “Padam Padam” opens the album and will be the first single to be released from the record.

Kylie dishes on the new, eagerly-awaited album: “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.”

Kylie has worked with a number of producers on the album with seven of the tracks being produced and co-written with her long-time collaborators, Biff Stannard and Duck Blackwell. Discussing the recording process, Kylie reveals: “I loved being back in the studio with my collaborators but was also able to benefit from remote recording, which we have all got used to – my mobile studio never left my side for a year and a half ! The album is a mix of songs I have written and songs which really spoke to me. Making this album helped me navigate challenging times and celebrate the now. I hope it accompanies listeners on their own journeys and becomes part of their story.”
