Nick’s been busy… Oh, and apparently the “emotional resonance of many of Kylie’s songs has never been clearer”, so, at last, the depth of the lyrics to “can’t get you out of my head” will finally be revealed for the Lennon-esque piece of work it really is.
MUSICAL odd couple Kylie Minogue and Nick Cave have reunited for a new version of their controversial duet.
The remake of Where the Wild Roses Grow features on Minogue’s new orchestral greatest hits album, The Abbey Road Sessions. The murder ballad, a hit in 1996, sees Cave’s character kill Minogue with a blow to the head. At the time the song reinvented Minogue’s career – she has continued to perform it in various concerts.
The Abbey Road Sessions, recorded in the iconic London studio last November, sees Minogue rework sixteen of her hits with a full orchestra.
“Stripped of her high end pop production the emotional resonance of many of Kylie’s songs has never been clearer, nor has her voice ever sounded better,” a press release for the record states. Minogue will showcase the album with the BBC Symphonic Orchestra at a show in London’s Hyde Park this Saturday.
