Jesus (could well have) wept this morning when pop legend Dannii Minogue announced her first new album in six years. While not quite the desperately-awaited follow up to iconic dance opus Neon Nights, there are still a lot of reasons to get excited about This Is It:The Very Best Of — the glamorous diva’s third greatest hits album. For starters, there’s her 2008 duet with sister Kylie Minogue (a stunning cover of ABBA‘s “The Winner Takes It All”) and a semi-new song called “Cos You’re Beautiful”.

I say semi-new because Dannii actually premiered it way back in 2010 on her reality show Style Queen. The collection is a great overview of the X Factor judge’s extraordinary career. Most of her singles are represented including epic urban ballad “I Don’t Wanna Take This Pain”, Oxford Street classic “Coconut” and signature song “Success”. The only omissions are gay anthem “Everlasting Night” and Japanese only singles “Boogie Woogie” and “Rescue Me”. See the full tracklist and listen to a preview of the pop deity’s new track after the jump.

  1. InscrutableTed

    Why is “Get Into You” a download-only track? It’s one of her better early singles. Better than dreck like “I don’t want to take this pain”.

  2. PopMonologues

    Shame about the Japanese singles or “Live for the one I Love”. Glad they’re including the Madonna-sampling “Don’t wanna lose this Groove” unlike “The Hits and Beyond”.

    I hope the new track is not that hideous song she sang with Ruth Lorenzo on her TV show

    Love’s On Every Corner was a single, too, and is shockingly missing. It’s a shame, considering it was co-written by Cathy Dennis and Dancin’ Danny D. I would’ve loved the rare classic Someone New on this collection, but overall it covers the greatest of Dannii’s oeuvre. Now for a US iTunes release and more new tracks. The kid’s old enough now, she should get in the studio…
