The Pop Goddess has made a definitive impression on dance music and returns with a new single — “New York City” an anthem that is sure to mean a lot to Minogue’s stateside fanbase.
Her career has been among one of the most coveted in pop-music, Kylie Minogue has achieved international stardom that is enviable and unmatched by many of her contemporaries. Since staking her claim to the pop charts in the late 80s with her stateside hit track “The Loco-Motion”, Minogue has kept pace with the biggest dance divas, including achieving as iconic a status as Madonna; by the new millennium it appeared the US had come around as the dance anthem “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” sealed her celebrity.
Kylie Minogue continued to enjoy a renaissance with a string of catchy dance tracks and pop confections that lead to a series of live smaller-venue performances in the states. To promote her next round of full-length albums, Minogue brought her show to New York City in 2008 and opened Pandora’s Box! Although she wouldn’t attempt an arena tour of the scale to which she was so well known across Europe and the UK, she scaled down her shows including her “Les Foiles” Tour to continue her dance floor dominance.
She’s since remained a relevant component of the pop-music lexicon ever since many of her early career hits haven’t transcended or performed as well as the mainstream success of 2001s Fever. Once her again her newest fans will have an opportunity to get reacquainted with Kylie with the release of her latest greatest hits package Step Back In Time: The Definitive Collection which promises to collect the most prominent tracks of her career up to her most recent hits from Golden. The first single, an original track, is already available and pays homage to her US fans.
“New York City” is classic Kylie Minogue. Pure dance and joyfully electrifying; commandeering the best elements of her indicative dance sound, but feeling fresh and contemporary. The track will easily appeal to her stateside fanbase, while still drawing in the most faithful followers of the Pop Goddess of Love, while easily making itself accessible to a whole new audience ready to step back in time with one of popular music’s greatest entertainers.
New York City is the first single from the latest greatest hits package from Kylie Minogue. The 2-disc album is set to release wide on June 28 and his called Step Back In Time: The Definitive Collection.
