    KYLIE Minogue has given fans a present on her 45th birthday - a racy new song.

    Skirt is the first taste of Minogue's work since signing with Jay Z's management company Roc Nation.

    The song sees Minogue sing the line "and then my skirt came down" over dubstep and electro beats, complete with sighs and moans.

    It is unclear whether the version online is a remix or the final version of a new single.

    The song was made with Scottish dance producer Nom De Strip, aka Chris Elliott, and is co-written with Beyonce and Rihanna hit maker The Dream.

    Elliott posted the song on Twitter after it was aired in Ibiza.

    The chorus runs "Tonight, be my supernova, take whatever you want, Tonight, let me bask in you like rays of the sun/tonight I'm yours."

    Minogue has been in the studio with fellow Australian Sia, as well as Rodney Jerkins, Pharrell Williams and Lady Gaga producers Red One and Fernando Garibay for what will be her twelfth album. It is due for release later this year.

    ...and it probably is a remix

    Kylie Minogue’s new single has reportedly been leaked online.

    A remix of a song titled “Skirt” has been released by Los Angeles based producer Nom De Strip.

    “Chris Lake dropped the dub version of ‘Skirt’, my track with Kylie Minogue at Pacha Ibiza!” he wrote on Facebook on Tuesday after posting the track on the music sharing site Sound Cloud.

    OMFG! - That "Dub Version" of her new single is so sick! - It really made my day! I wanted to make a Kylie playlist, since it's her birthday today and I wanna pay tribute to her while I listen to her songs all day long.. I have to include it. It gives me a "Slow" feeling! - I'm already in love with it!!!

    We're obviously all excited for this, but I think we're not supposed to open the topic unless it is 100% confirmed as a single.

    I don't think it's the new single, more like a teaser of the album's sound! Kylie tweeted earlier that any info on the new single will come directly from her. I think the discussion about the song should be continued in Kylie's general topic.

    I really like the new direction, though! It has really divided fans but it's what she needs now - something risky and fresh, she was playing it safe with most of her latest releases! Bring on the new album!

    The promo picture is hot:

    Chris Lake (producer) confirmed it's the original version, not a remix!

    Sounds very brave/risky for a studio version but I love it! Still, it's most likely not a single.

    This is really bad. She can do so much better than this. All that groaning....just no. I hope this isn't the direction the new album is going in.

    Before anyone comments on me being a Madonna stan, I have been supporting Kylie since 1988

    It's not confirmed as a single so keep discussion to the General Artists forum.

    I love this now, it took a few listens to hit me but I downloaded a version that was billed as 'remastered' and it sounds great, especially the intro! Wonder if it'll be a bonus track on the album or something,

    Quite dreadful, I really think this is going to be Kylie's "Hard Candy".

    The lyric video is here!

I love how Will’s shots have a rawness to them. They feel real, unprocessed and much like the viewer is there with me.”
    She looks so hot! The song itself is definitely a grower, I wonder what her team is planning to do with it.

    Edit: Ah Supernatural, you beat me to it!

    Skirt is fantastic.

    It's so modern and ...dance!

    Love the production. This seems to be the promo single, before the new official one.
    It will be sent to american radios next week, let's hope in a "good" reception from the people.

    I'm addicted to this! Really interesting song which is unusual for dance tracks nowadays.

    'Skirt' promo CDs (including remixes too) have allegedly been sent out to clubs and radio!

    Here the first official remix:
    Skirt (Nom de Strip Dub Mix)

    It's aaace!
    More remixes are on the way, production team GTA has also confirmed they remixed the song. I hope we'll get a Skirt EP on iTunes, too!

    I love this song but I don't want it to be lead single because it received mixed critics from fans... And strategy is really bad

    I hope she won't do on air/on sale thing again with her new single

    A reliable insider confirmed today that 'Skirt' is definitely not the first single, but a buzz track to build-up interest in the new project. It is to be receiving remix treatment next week and Kylie's team will send out promos to clubs and radio, but other than that they have no further plans with the song.

    The first proper single is expected to drop in July or August. The album is planned to be released in September / October, though that date might be pushed back.
