Kylie Minogue on working with Sia: 'I'm such a fan and admirer'

Australian pop superstar Kylie Minogue has just released her 12th studio album, 'Kiss Me Once', and confessed to Rolling Stone that getting to work with songwriter Sia was inspiring. 

She explained that she asked the 'Chandelier' hitmaker to join the project as the executive producer and was delighted when she accepted the position: "I'd been working on the record about four or five months before Sia came on board. I had already had a couple of songwriter and recording sessions with her, and they were fantastic — I'm such a fan and admirer."

We got on great, so I asked her if she would come on board as executive producer, and to my delight she said yes straightaway. From there, I loaded her up with everything I'd recorded — good, bad, some things were great already, some were just ideas. Then she just held my hand, really."

The 'Into The Blue' beauty added that having the guidance of someone who is so established in the music industry assured her and allowed her to feel as though she was in a safe place to be as creative as possible:

"I had guidance from my A&R, my record company, my management at Roc Nation, etc. [Sia and I are] both Australian, we're female, we're in this industry, we're in it quite differently — I adore what she's done with her career, and she still very much believes in someone like me, who is out there at the front line of pop. It was a great dynamic. And then we tried to record and record — and I recorded plenty — and tried to come up with a good track list for the end result."
