Therefore, the Australian singer and actress confirmed that she will reissue her album in multiple formats. The album was a success, selling more than 6 million copies.

It will be released on white vinyl and on a frosted recycled clear cassette. The release dates are October 15th for the UK and Australia, and November 19th for the rest of the world. And the pre-orders are already sold out!
Ed Sheeran also confirmed to Australian radio host Ash London that Kylie Minogue makes an appearance on his upcoming album, “=” (“Equals”). The long-awaited album will be out on October 29th. Evidently, it will present a song featuring Kylie Minogue and Australian musician Jimmy Barnescome as backing vocalists.
National Album Day chose Joy Crookes as Album Day Ambassador
Alongside the artist, the National Album Day chose four other women as Album Day Ambassadors. They are Sharleen Spiteri, Laura Mvula, Ray Blk and Joy Crookes.
“Ever since I was a child, my favorite possession was an album,” Joy Crookes says while describing her passion for albums. “It is important we protect the album artform as removing it and oversaturating our industry with singles removes the stage for musicians to tell their story.”
In response to National Album Day’s choice, Minogue said to be “proud to be a part of National Album Day alongside such amazing, inspirational female artists!”
Moreover, the National Album Day group said that they will “announce more details over the summer.” In particular, these announcements include the list of names supporting National Album Day 2021. In addition, they will release special product to mark the occasion.
