Dannii Minogue to release 20th anniversary edition of Neon Nights
By Classic Pop | March 30, 2023
Today, on the anniversary of its original release date, London Records have announced new 20th anniversary editions of Dannii Minogue‘s Top 10 album Neon Nights, set for release on 16th June.
Available to pre-order from Friday March 31st, these #Danniiversary editions celebrate Neon Nights with new artwork and liner notes, bonus tracks and B-sides, unarchived mixes and a swathe of newly commissioned remixes.
First released in 2003, the album spawned four UK Top 10 hits with Who Do You Love Now? (No.3), Put The Needle On It (No.7), I Begin To Wonder (No.2) and Don’t Wanna Lose This Feeling (No.5).
The album debuted at No.8 on the UK Official Albums Chart and was certified Gold, and in Dannii’s native Australia it was nominated for Best Pop Release at the 2003 ARIA Music Awards.
After Dannii’s previous album Girl, the singer had parted ways with her label, and had not released music for almost half a decade: “I knew the crazy world of music was not always fair, but I also knew I’d had amazing experiences and done a lot of awesome stuff. I didn’t think my music career was going to come back, and that was fine. I just thought: ‘Well, that was it.’”
Out of the blue, an invite from Pete Tong would provide an unexpected catalyst. As A&R at London Records, Tong asked Dannii Minogue to collaborate with Dutch duo Riva on a rework of their club hit Stringer. The resultant single Who Do You Love Now?, would be a worldwide smash.
Dannii was signed up by London Records for an album deal and work on Neon Nights commenced.
“With Girl, I was given wings,” Dannii says now of the recording process. “With Neon Nights, I was allowed to fly.”
“When I first released Neon Nights I was overwhelmed,” Dannii recalls. “I was running around promoting and it was hard to catch a moment to enjoy it all — but even then, I knew that one day I’d be able to look back on it all, and I’d be able to think: ‘Wow. What a time…’”
