Talking of which how is the Kylie musical coming along? Is it still in the development stages?
I mean, Denise sings an amazing version of Sonia's You'll Never Stop Me From Loving You in such a way that deconstructs not only the song but the way you perceives the pop song. Was that the way you wanted it to be?
And with the AntiTour? What songs, if any, just didn't quite cut the mustard during rehearsals?
What was that like to be in the same rehearsal space as where Intimate & Live was rehearsed?
I am taking some time to absorb the latest Kylie album - I know. Its certainly unlike her previous releases. My favourite two tracks are the title and Mr President. Quite different in style and yet both very "Kylie".
The thing is - if the tracks are really good they always find a way of sneaking out one way or another. For instance I really love “Sparks” which isn’t on the “KMO” album but is on a limited edition version. Going back I always wished “Love Is Waiting” was on KM94 but again it ended up on a rarities disc so all good.
That triangle between the artist, audience and label has always intrigued me and recently undergone huge developments. The British music industry has become streamlined in recent months. Indeed, a lot of capital stems from streams and the dust appears to have settled from the loss of EMI - the last British label. The majors are now either French (Universal), American (Warner) or Japanese (SONY). What do you make of the future of the music industry in the context of the breaking artist/writer?
