Kylie Minogue has today announced a remix album titled Extension (The Extended Mixes), which sees the songs from her most recent record, Tension, given extra room to breathe. Extension is released on Friday, 8th December, and a single has already been released, ‘Hold On To Now (Extended Mix)’.
Tension was something of a return to form for Minogue. Released in September of this year, it simplified her sound, bringing it back to its bare essentials and creating something eminently danceable.
Kylie Minogue – ‘Hold On To Now’
“I started this album with an open mind and a blank page,” Minogue said about the record at the time. “Unlike my last two albums, there wasn’t a ‘theme’, it was about finding the heart or the fun or the fantasy of that moment and always trying to service the song”
The biggest breakthrough of Tension was the lead single, ‘Padam Padam’, one of Minogue’s most commercially successful tracks in quite some time. When it debuted, it hit #39 on the ARIA Singles Chart, the highest that Minogue has sat on the list in over a decade. It’s been described as a sleeper hit, gaining traction through memes and word-of-mouth, rather than a big PR push.
Extension takes the tracks from the original record and, as the title implies, extends them, twisting the pre-existing tracks into longer, more nuanced dance hits. Get ready for the record’s 8th December release date by streaming the original, and why not dip into Minogue’s back catalogue while you’re there.
