Danielle Jane Minogue Is Returning To Music!
“I’ve been wanting to do music for ages but something was holding me back,” D. Minogue said in a new Australian interview. “Now I feel really settled. I feel like I’m in a personal space where I can do it and it’s going to be fun. Physically I’m really well right now, I had all these health issues in the last few years, I just want to get out there and enjoy it. Mardi Gras makes sense. I just have to brush off the dust and get back out there.”
Dannii hasn't released a studio album since 2003's Neon Nights — which, in hindsight, is pretty much one of the finest pop classics of the new millennium. Some one-off singles, the 2006 Hits & Beyond collection, album reissues and umpteen stints on shows like The X Factor UK and Australia's Got Talent followed, but all Dannii's horde of faithful fans have wanted all these years is a new fucking album!
Anyway, in the interview, she goes on and on and on about Mardi Gras, then offers this non-answer about her plans for the rest of the year: "I have to make decisions on a lot of things but I don’t want to think of anything else except Mardi Gras right now."
That said, the writeup points out that she's been quietly recording music for two years: “When I used to sing when [my son] Ethan was really little he’d go ‘Mum, stop’ so I just didn’t sing. He’s only heard my new stuff, he’s in the know with all that. There’s a duet I’ve written that is really badass funky that he loves.”
Take a hike, Beyonce. You're about to be made irrelevant.
