Kylie Minogue has spent much of her time lately in what we might call art-school mode.
School's out, though, in the Australian pop diva's new single, "Into the Blue," which layers words about running free and leaving it all behind over a thumping disco groove with only one thing on its mind.
Produced by Mike Del Rio (who also did Selena Gomez's delightfully raunchy "Birthday"), the song is the first sampling from a studio album, "Kiss Me Once," due March 18. According to a press release, the disc -- Minogue's dance-oriented follow-up to 2010's "Aphrodite" -- also features input from Pharrell Williams, Ariel Rechtshaid, Greg Kurstin and Sia, who served as the set's executive producer.
Listen to "Into the Blue" below.
