Hurts And Kylie Minogue Confirm Duet "Devotion"

News came today from both Hurts (aka the new Pet Shop Boys) and Kylie Minogue that a duet between them titled "Devotion" will indeed appear on the Manchester, England duo's forthcoming debut LP Happiness.

NME posted confirmation from Hurts frontman Theo Hutchcraft earlier today:
"A few weeks ago we finished our album, but it did not feel complete. We have written an album, mainly about women, which felt lost without the salvation of a woman.

"We wrote a song about infidelity called 'Devotion'. Since we have enjoyed an illicit life-long love affair with Kylie Minogue, we mustered up every ounce of courage we had and asked her if she would like to sing the song with us. She said yes. The delicate yet powerful way she expresses the fragility of female emotion has added a magical missing ingredient to an album about love, loss and happiness. If you don't ask, you don't get… I guess."
Meanwhile, this evening Minogue tweeted, "I have recorded a song called 'Devotion' with the delicious 'Hurts'!!!"

Extremely excited for this album—and even more so now. It's out in the UK on September 6. In the meantime, Yanks can snag a pared-down version of the Arthur Baker remix of Hurts' single "Wonderful Life" (which shaves nearly a minute and 40 seconds off the original) from the latest Kitsuné Maison compilation on iTunes.

    what would be even more amazing is if this was a cover of Nomad's (I Wanna Give You) Devotion. That would be brillopants.

    Delicious indeed. And an Arthur Baker remix just seems appropriate, although it's almost a little too busy. Definitely looking forward to the full-length.

    This combination could actually be VERY interesting. I hope it is better than the song Kylie did with the Pet Shop Boys. I believe that song was called "In Denial".
