Kylie Minogue Covers “This Wheel’s On Fire” For ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ Soundtrack: Listen

Kylie Minogue doing the Absolutely Fabulous theme song? Sounds about right.

Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley have once again slipped into Edina and Patsy mode, for the upcoming Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (in theaters July 22), and Kylie has been enlisted to record a version of “This Wheel’s On Fire” for the soundtrack. The track was originally co-written by Bob Dylan and The Band‘s Rick Danko, but it was Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger‘s rendition, a psychedelic Top 5 hit in the UK in 1968, that subsequently came to be used (in re-recorded form) in the AbFab opening credits throughout the early-to-mid ’90s.

Minogue’s electro-pop version of “This Wheel’s On Fire” has echoes of her 2007 hit “2 Hearts,” so if you dig X era Kylie, then this will probably be right up your alley.

The Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie soundtrack will be released on July 1. “This Wheel’s On Fire” is available to grab now with iTunes pre-orders of the album.
