Kylie Minogue’s up to a new project that kind of means new music – on The Abbey Road Sessions, she’s dramatically reinventing past hits. “Where the Wild Roses Grow,” her 1996 duet with fellow Aussie Nick Cave, is one of the tracks to go under the knife: we’re loving the deeply emotional power the new bare-bones instrumentation gives to the already-moving track. We’re not sure how Cave’s famously gravelly croon goes so well with Minogue’s bubbly pipes, but it does, and the end product is stunning. Check it out – the rest of the record drops November 6.
