Kylie Minogue‘s “Into the Blue” has leaked, proof positive that she was perhaps too good at building anticipation for its January 27 release date. (Catch the song’s lyrics over at DirectLyrics.com.) Following a hashtag tease, a snapshot from her video shoot, and interviews, her new single popped up hours after Amazon revealed its artwork (above).
While launched by piano chords and a wash of strings, “Into the Blue” truly takes off at the seismic hook, where Minogue’s crystalline voice soars over an arena-ready dance breakdown. She sounds optimistic, if not in total bliss.
Previously, the diva’s said some promising things of her new single — how its sound “essentially retains my DNA,” that she used past hits (“Can’t Get You Out of My Head,” “I Shouldn’t Be So Lucky”) as reference points and therefore, yes, it would be a Kylie song. Was she right? Hear the song after the jump and weigh in at the comments.
