It’s been two-and-a-half years since Kylie Minogue released her tenth studio album, the aptly-titled X, and in that time, she managed to get a taste for the love for her in the States by heading out on her inaugural trek across North America. So cut to today, when fans of the Australian pop minx are jumping up and down in their disco shoes over news of Kylie’s new single “All Lovers” (out June 28), off forthcoming album Aphrodite (out July 5). Have a peek at the Aphrodite cover art, as well as a listen to a short clip of “All Lovers,” below.

Hmmm. Between the cover art for Kylie, Kelis and Janelle Monae‘s new albums, this is shaping up to be a the Summer Of The Pop Goddess.

Stuart Price executive produced Aphrodite, and songwriters on the album include Minogue, Price, Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters (whose own new album Night Work is out June 28), Keane’s Tim Rice-Oxley (new Keane EP out May 10), Calvin Harris and Nerina Pallot.

Regarding “All Lovers,” Kylie said the following in a statement:

“The single was one of the last tracks to be written for the album, As I was recording it I knew that ‘All the Lovers’ had to be the first single; it sums up the euphoria of the album perfectly. It gives me goose-bumps, so I’m really excited to hear what everyone thinks of it.”

Below is a 30-second snippet of “All Lovers.” What do you think—are you feeling the goose-bumps like Kylie?
