Golden will be Minogue's first studio album release since Kylie Christmas in November 2015. She told BBC Radio 2 she recorded the majority of the record in Nashville, which she said gives the album a "country feel."
"A lot of it was done in Nshville, and that taught me about putting more story into the song," the singer said. "And then you can take that song and produce that any way you want."
