    'Highlighter', People Under The Stairs' most ambitious work to date, marks their 8th album release and captures the unparalleled group at the height of their 14 year career.

    Recorded across a handpicked selection of Los Angeles studios, the duo dig deep into tape, consoles, obscure records and live players and emerge with a project that is both unique and yet familiar. Amidst the swirling musical landscapes, the P realize their most psychedelic album yet and continue to pioneer an alternate, innovative musical direction in rap music.

    Kylie: 'The Abbey Road Sessions'

    Kylie Minogue releases her brand new album 'The Abbey Road Sessions' on Parlophone Records on October 29th.

    The album features sixteen tracks, all radically reworked, spanning Kylie's incredible 25 year career. The album was recorded in London's legendary Abbey Road Studios with Kylie's band and a full orchestra.

    Nick Cave re-recorded his vocal on the famous duet, 'Where The Wild Roses Grow', especially for the album.

    Other highlights of the album include a wonderfully poignant 'Better The Devil You Know', the ever-amazing 'Confide In Me', a sultry 'On A Night Like This', a joyous 'All The Lovers', the beautiful 'Finer Feelings' and a version of 'The Locomotion' which swaggers with true 1950s panache.

    Over all 16 tracks one thing becomes very clear - stripped of her high end pop production, the emotional resonance of many of Kylie's songs has never been clearer, nor has her voice ever sounded better.

    Kylie will perform most tracks from the album with the BBC concert Orchestra this Saturday September 8th at London's Hyde Park, headlining 'Proms In the Park'.
