Kyle Minogue joins smoothfm lineup to plug ‘DISCO’, her new Studio 54-inspired album

Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue is taking over smoothfm’s airwaves in celebration of her new DISCO album.

From today (November 6) between 7pm and 9pm, Minogue will play two hours of disco hits on Friday nights for the next four weeks. The show is completely free of commercials.

Listeners can expect to hear hits from Donna Summer, Madonna, Chic, Janet Jackson and more.

“I’m jumping behind the mic to host smooth’s Old School Disco Friday night edition,” she said.

“Simon Diaz was doing such a fantastic job hosting Saturday nights so I said, hang on, I need to play some of my all-time favourite dance floor hits as well to create that vibe wherever you’re enjoying your night.”

The pop icon recently discussed the inspiration behind her album in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, in which she revealed that a collaboration with Prince was once on the cards.

Minogue will also be celebrating the release of her 15th studio album through a livestream this weekend, hosted by the UK based Driift which also just launched in Australia.

So, by Studio 54 inspired – are we supposed to just believe the title? or are we to deduce that the horse in the video is some supposed reference to Bianca Jagger? Because from a musical point of view – this is as far from Studio 54 as it gets. Timing wise, the worst possible year for this release given that the ‘disco’ industry is on life support – and this cheesy sound is now very dated in clubland anyway. This song (2 singles old now) is more like a slower, dreary reboot of 2004’s I Believe in You. Given we’re 3 singles into this apparently “new” album, all of which so far have been more or less, flops, the newest single, “I Love It”, is by far the most “disco” of the 3, but still very lacking. By all means get Kylie on air and play the classics, but as far as this album is concerned, forget about plugging it – it needs to be un-plugged and forgotten about.
