Kylie Minogue Confirms Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears Collab

Kylie Minogue has announced her brand new collaboration with Jake Shears of the Scissor Sisters.

The 54-year-old superstar pop chanteuse has re-aligned musical forces with the Scissor Sisters frontman on ‘Voices’ from his upcoming solo album ‘Last Man Dancing.’ Scheduled to drop on June 2, the song is said to have been inspired by “all the house parties” the rocker has thrown over the years.

In a statement to England’s The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column, Shears said “The first half gives you those singalong moments that get everyone into it at the top of the night. As the hours turn, you can get a little deeper and darker, more where the second half of the record goes. It’s inspired by all the over-the-top house parties I’ve thrown.”

Throughout the years, Kylie has worked with Jake several times, most recently on the 2017 single ‘The Other Boys’ along with Nervo and Nile Rodgers. She also sang backing vocals for the Scissor Sisters on their 2010 hit ‘Any Which Way’ and the Aussie rock band also wrote her 2007 ballad ‘White Diamond’, which she premiered during her ‘Showgirl Homecoming’ tour after she recovered from breast cancer.

In addition to Minogue, Jake’s forthcoming full length features Le Chev, Amber Martin, and Big Freedia. Signed to Mute Records, label founder Daniel Miller stated that he “cannot wait” for fans to hear the new music, adding “It’s my great pleasure to welcome Jake into the Mute family. Working with him on set-up over the past few months has been inspiring. I can’t wait for everyone to hear the new album, Last Man Dancing, and I’m looking forward to what is set to be an exciting campaign unfurling throughout 2023.”
