KYLIE MINOGUE is on a roll after her mega hit Padam Padam relaunched her career last May.

Now fans will be delighted that they will be hearing new music a lot sooner than they might have expected.

Along with a repackage of her No1 record Tension, which will include a few new tunes, I can reveal she has started work on her 17th studio album.

A source said: “Kylie has made it clear to her team this is no time to slow down.

“Plans are already in motion for the next two albums, one of which will be a repackage of Tension with additional songs.

“As for the direction of album 17 it’s early days — but a full-on dance album is in the works.

“The plan is to release the Tension repackage towards the end of the year, with probably up to five new tracks.”

Kylie went into the studio in California with chart-topping British DJ Joel Corry early last month to work on her dance-inspired new songs.

And in an exclusive chat before their sessions, Joel revealed that he couldn’t wait to get started.

He said: “Kylie absolutely smashed it last year.

“They sound really fresh and current.

“She is pop royalty.

“It would be an honour to work with her.”

Head & Heart hitmaker Joel went on to share a muted clip of them dancing in the studio, alongside the caption: “Been in LA writing BANGERS all week.”

Kylie is currently enjoying some down time with her family in Australia before kicking off the final four dates of her debut Las Vegas residency at Voltaire.

The run of intimate shows has been such a hit that bosses at the venue at The Venetian Resort have offered her an open-ended invite to return should she want it.

Kylie will also play a one-off show in London’s Hyde Park as part of the British Summer Time gigs in July, with insiders telling me she is hard at work putting a new tour together — her first in five years.

My source added: “For fans, it’s been an eternity coming.

“Kylie will finally go on a massive world tour in 2025.
