Kylie Minogue announces new album

Kylie Minogue has been reinvented as a Greek goddess, as she announced details of her return with a new album today.

She poses as the goddess of love Aphrodite - who gives her name to the singer's 11th studio album - for the cover of her new release, due out in July.

Kylie is seen in flowing, windswept blue robes, arms held aloft and looking to the heavens in the shot. It could be the answer to the prayers of her record bosses at struggling EMI, which owns her label Parlophone.

Details were released on the singer's website today along with a snatch of her forthcoming single All The Lovers which is out on June 28.

The album sees her working with Madonna collaborator Stuart Price who is executive producer. He is also among the songwriters, as well as Scissor Sisters star Jake Shears, Calvin Harris, Nerina Pallot and Tim Rice-Oxley from the band Keane.

Kylie said: "The single was one of the last tracks to be written for the album. As I was recording it I knew that All The Lovers had to be the first single - it sums up the euphoria of the album perfectly.

"It gives me goose-bumps, so I'm really excited to hear what everyone thinks of it."

Price said: "All The Lovers is a magical song and sums up everything that the album is: Kylie doing pop dance music at her best.

"When you look in your mind's eye at everything Kylie is, it's on this record."
