Light Years (Kylie Minogue Album) - Background and Release

Background and Release

In 1998, Minogue's contract with Deconstruction had ended, due in part to the relatively unsuccessful commercial turnout of the album Impossible Princess. The last single from that album "Cowboy Style" was released only in Australia by Mushroom Records to coincide with the Intimate and Live Tour. By 1999, Kylie Minogue had signed herself to the label Parlophone. She began recording songs for her seventh album Light Years, most notably the lead single "Spinning Around", which became a number one hit and was considered her 'comeback' single.

The album was released on 22 September 2000 in Australia and New Zealand and on 25 September 2000 in the UK and Europe after the single "Spinning Around". It includes a hidden track, "Password" which is included in the pregap portion of the CD at the beginning of the track one. Subsequent German, Spanish and Japanese versions of the album contain the original French bridge of "Your Disco Needs You" translated into their respective languages along with "Password" as an orthodox hidden track.

Minogue promoted the album with the hugely successful "On a Night Like This Tour" which visited Europe and Australia. Due to the success of the album and the tour, a special tour edition package was released. It contained the original album along with a second disc featuring various remixes. The special edition album was released on 5 March 2001. For the Australian tour edition, additional remixes were included as well as Minogue's remake of Olivia Newton-John's "Physical", following popular performances of the song on the tour.
