Australian superstar Kylie Minogue released her new single "Dancing" on Jan. 18. She goes country on the dance track.

"Dancing" is the lead single from Minogue's upcoming album, Golden. It's her first release of new music since 2014's Kiss Me Once and 2015's Kylie Christmas. From the sound of "Dancing," Kylie's music is taking a new and unexpected direction. She was more hands-on for this album, co-writing every track and recording primarily in Nashville.

Minogue penned "Dancing" with Ed Sheeran co-writer Amy Wadge and producer Sky Adams. Acoustic guitar opens the song with Kylie hoping to be busting a move when she's reached life's end. Once the chorus hits, piano and buoyant beats kick in. "When I go out I wanna go out dancing," Minogue declares. The club queen steps into the barnyard for a jig-worthy track that's cute, quirky and Kylie at her most determined to have fun.

"Dancing" is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Mingoue's Golden album will be released on April 6.
