Melbourne: Kylie Minogue fans can expect her first new album since signing with Jay-Z`s Roc Nation to launch later this year.
The 44-year-old singer is recording mainly in Los Angeles and has already completed sessions with Pharrell and Stargate as well as American hitmaker Rodney " Darkchild " Jerkins, News.com.au reported.
Minogue has said that the new album would be "different."
"It`s bringing out something different in me, which is cool," Minogue told Rolling Stone as she was given the Courage Award at a Women`s Cancer Research Fund event in Beverly Hills.
She said that she needs to know what it is to do something different, a different style of delivery, different beats and different subject matter.
The Australian pop princess said that she thinks that she is a natural chameleon, which helps her float her boat.
Minogue, who likes to try to move the goalpost and experiment with different sounds, said that she will maintain the DNA of what a Kylie track is.
She said that though she could not really describe it yet, she revealed that she is having a lot of fun in the process.
She said the album would be released this year.
