SHE ACHIEVES HER EIGHTH NUMBER ONE ALBUM WITH ‘DISCO’
Kylie is the first female solo artist to claim Number 1 albums in five consecutive decades (‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s, ‘10s, and ‘20s)
‘DISCO’ is Kylie’s eighth UK Number 1 album, overtaking the likes of Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Elton John and George Michael, who all have seven chart-topping albums
With nearly 55k sales and counting, ‘DISCO’ is the fastest-selling release of the year, eclipsing Bruce Springsteen’s Letter To You and claiming the biggest opening week of 2020, surpassing Lady Gaga’s Chromatica
This marks the first time in Kylie’s career that she has claimed three consecutive Number 1 albums of studio recordings
Kylie has achieved her eighth Number 1 album with ‘DISCO”, out now via BMG. Today’s historic results mean Kylie sets a new Official Chart record, becoming the first female artist to score a Number 1 on the UK’s Official Albums Chart in five consecutive decades – in the ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s, ‘10s and ‘20s.
‘I don’t know what to say, I’m at a loss for words! Thank you to everyone who supported this album and this campaign. It means the world to me and I’m so touched that it has found its way to your hearts.’
‘DISCO’ was released last week to widespread critical acclaim, deemed ‘an irresistible tonic to real life. Thank God for Kylie Minogue’ by Metro in a 5* review, ‘the ultimate rescue remedy’ by The Observer (4*) and ‘an exquisitely produced, effervescent tribute to 70s and 80s disco music and dance as escapism’ by The i (4*).
‘DISCO’ is the fifteenth studio album from the pop icon, following her UK Number One album ‘Golden’, released in 2018. It features lead singles ‘Say Something’, which received global praise – deemed ‘a galactic slice of pop music heaven’ by i-D and ‘an introspective dance track with lyrics that feel pertinent for our quarantine days’ by Rolling Stone and ‘Magic’, which NME called ‘an exuberant, horn-fueled romp.’
For ‘DISCO’, Kylie worked with long-time collaborator Biff Standard plus Sky Adams (with whom she worked with on Golden), Teemu Brunila (David Guetta, Jason Derulo) and Maegan Cottone (Iggy Azalea, Demi Lovato), alongside others. The album was largely recorded in lockdown with each team member recording and working from a separate location, leading to Kylie having a vocal engineering credit on all but two of the sixteen tracks on the record.
Kylie is managed by A&P Artist Management. ‘DISCO’ is out now via BMG.
