Kylie Minogue Ratchets Up the ‘Tension’ With New Single Announcement: ‘Are You Ready?’

She already taught you what your heart sounds like with “Padam Padam.” Now, Kylie Minogue is ready to put the pressure on with her new single.


In a post to her Instagram on Wednesday (Aug. 30), Minogue revealed the release date for her latest single, “Tension.” Due out on Thursday (Aug. 31), the clip played what appears to be a short instrumental snippet of the song, as a club-ready ’90s house piano plays a series of chunky chords.

“LOVERS!!! New music is coming!!” the Australian icon wrote in the caption of her Instagram post. “The single TENSION is yours 31st August. Are you ready??”

The song, along with being her newest single, serves as the title track for her new album Tension, due out on Sept. 22. With her latest single “Padam Padam,” Minogue certainly drove interest in her new project. Yhe pounding club track earned the pop singer her very first top 10 hit on Billboard‘s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart after going viral throughout the summer.

Minogue also recently announced that once her new album is officially out, she’ll be heading to Las Vegas for what she promised would be “More Than Just a Residency,” according to its title. Kicking off on Nov. 3 at Venetian Resort Las Vegas’ Voltaire, tickets to the pop star’s first-ever residency have already sold out.

The “Locomotion” singer also recently announced her upcoming TV special, An Audience With Kylie, which will see the star look back through her greatest hits during a performance at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall. The special is set to film at the iconic venue on Dec. 1, and subsequently air on ITV in the U.K.
