Kylie Minogue's new single 'All the Lovers': Are you one of them?

“Dance. It’s all I wanna do. So won’t you dance?”

With pleasure, Kylie. Except it’s not entirely clear that “All the Lovers”, the just-leaked first single off the down-under pop diva’s upcoming album Aphrodite (out July 5), is actually a full-on dance track, musically speaking. Despite Minogue’s enticing lyrical invitations to get down, the song’s sound is less in line with the urgent robo-rhythms of her 2007 hit “Speakerphone” than with the earnest dreampop of 2004’s “I Believe in You,” right down to their copycat basslines. Translation for the non Minogue-ophiles out there: it’s a head-bopper, not a hip-shaker.

Of course, both of those older songs reached near-ubiquity in gyms, gay clubs, and clothing stores, and “All the Lovers” likely will, too. It’s got an addictive groove, those famously breathy vocals, and a climax of soaring, tangled synths that would’ve been the perfect main-menu soundtrack for an Atari game of Studio 54. The dance floor can wait; we’re too busy enjoying this to get up right now.

Check out the song below, and let us know what you think: Is Kylie’s latest a summer smash? Or are you not feeling the love?

  • Daniel Skinner

    It’s Kylie – Sexy, Smart and Seductive!

  • Marion

    Love it! I can’t wait for her new album to come out.

  • L

    I’m so glad she finally released this. Thank you Adam for telling me!

  • nat

    Love it! It is really beautifull!

  • commenter

    I like it. I wish it had more of the synths done towards the end of the song. Not groundbreaking, but solid Kylie.

  • DustinDD

    I agree it’s not entirely clear if “All the Lovers” is actually a full-on dance track, musically speaking. Thats my biggest disappointment. I thought “Better Than Today” was a better and more dancable, edgier track to use as a lead single. I love Kylie but for a lead single I was expecting more of a faster/dance track instead of a slower/I Believe In You-ish dance track. It’s unfortunate but I dont think she’ll break US airwaves with All The Lovers. http://www.DustinDrorbaugh.com

    It’ll be remixed, and then it will be played over and over…

  • El

    Amazing! I hope it gets a shot in America.

  • jeff

    I take it that 8 comments means no one gives a darn. That is utter rubbish, shallow, empty and I hope I never hear it again. I am tired of autotune. She’s made way better catch pop than this. The chorus is repetitive in the most brain numbing turn it off before I scream way.

    • Mark

      Autotune??? I don’t think so. I’m sure you haven’t even listened to it all the way through. Of course you don’t have to worry about hearing it again, though. This being the USA and all, it’s obvious this won’t get any airplay. After all radio is all about Ke$ha and B.o.B. at the moment. This is a great track!!

      • Kyle S (yes real name)

        Agree with you Mark.

  • Kylie_4_EVER

    This track is gorgeous. Not a full-on dance stomper, but, it’s got a beautiful, infectious groove. I can’t wait for “Aphrodite” (with Stuart Price at the wheel, the genius behind Madonna’s “Confessions on a Dance Floor”, it should be out of this world!!).

  • hellojimperry

    It’s her entire US Tour in just one song, breathy vocals, whispered balad, and ascending rhythmic energetic pop that soars to a climactic end. Can’t wait to pair this with the SEXY video to come … <3 KM

  • Fernando

    Oh Minnie, you did it again! It took me a few listens to appreciate the beauty of this track, and now I’m convinced All The Lovers will be huge. I will definitely be dancing with you this summer!!!

  • Francoism

    The bridge gives me goose bumps. It’s a grower, not a shower.

    • Kyle S (yes real name)

      HA! I love your comment!

  • C Meyer

    I’m absolutely a lover! Kylie can do (almost) no wrong! I love the new song; can’t WAIT for the new album!!!
