Kylie Minogue has always known how to make her fans’ hearts flutter, so much so that she’s named her new song after the feeling. 

“Padam Padam”, which expresses the sound of a heartbeat, is a quintessential electro-pop anthem from the Australian icon, even flirting a little with techno beats.

“Padam, padam, I hear it and I know,” she confidently sings over Lostboy’s ominous production. “Padam, padam, I know you want to take me home,” she later asserts.

You can watch the accompanying music video, which finds Kylie resplendent in red, below.

“Padam Padam” features on Kylie’s upcoming album, Tension, which is scheduled for a September release. Tension will also feature “10 Out of 10”, Kylie’s collaboration with superstar Dutch DJ Oliver Heldens.

“I started this album with an open mind and a blank page,” she said about her new album. “Unlike my last two albums there wasn’t a ‘theme’; it was about finding the heart or the fun or the fantasy of that moment and always trying to service the song. I wanted to celebrate each song’s individuality and to dive into that freedom. I would say it’s a blend of personal reflection, club abandon and melancholic high.”

The album was produced by Minogue’s longtime collaborator, Richard “Biff” Stannard, and features contributions from a number of other top producers, including Duck Blackwell, Ariel Rechtshaid, and Stuart Price.
