Doing an Adele? Kylie Minogue set to release new album inspired by break-up

Kylie Minogue has revealed she is to return to music with a new album in 2018.

The Australian popstar says the new album is inspired by “a little bit of heartbreak”, after she dramatically split from her fiancé earlier this year.

Her engagement to husband-to-be Joshua Sasse ended following accusations that Sasse had cheated on Kylie with another actress.

Now the 49-year-old says she’s ready to release “super positive and inspiring” new music.

Kylie told The Sun: “In the last year, there’s been some of that, but we bounce back.

“Most of it is super positive and inspiring, as a note to self as much as anything else. I’m feeling great right now.”

The new tracks have been recorded in Nashville, home to the world’s greatest country music stars.

She added: “It was good. In the studio it’s a slightly weird concept to be spending seven, eight, nine hours in a room with people sometimes you don’t know.

“If you’re working with good people it’s the perfect place to deal with stuff.

“I did a lot of work on the album before that but Nashville had a profound effect on me.

“The songs are very storytelling and story-based. It was so great to do things a little bit differently.”

Kylie was reportedly devastated after splitting from her fiancé in February.

They had been dating for almost two years after meeting on a US show Sasse stars in, where Kylie made a guest appearance.

The pledge came true after the couple called off their engagement before marriage equality was introduced.

Minogue has been vocal in her support of the “Say I Do Down Under” campaign.
