The Presets Remix Kylie Minogue’s Upcoming Single
Australian electronic duo The Presets have reworked fellow Australian Kylie Minogue’s upcoming single, “I Was Gonna Cancel.” The funky disco number was written and produced for Minogue by Pharrell after the Aussie diva experienced a bad day. After an emotional outpour to the “Get Lucky” singer, he penned the song especially for her. “He turned my bad day into something amazing,” Minogue explained during a live stream on Facebook.
“We have always had the utmost respect for Kylie as a pop star and an Australian icon,” The Presets said. “After we deejayed for her recently in Sydney, she asked us to remix ‘I Was Gonna Cancel’. Saying yes was a no brainer.” The duo deconstructed the song, reconstructing it as a haunting electro-house track with a steady beat and chilling synths with Minogue’s vocals tailored more to the remix than the original.
“I Was Gonna Cancel” is taken from Minogue’s latest record, Kiss Me Once, out now. Purchase the original version here, and expect the single to drop May 12th.
