International pop star Kylie Minogue will see her latest album, “Fever,” released in Feb. 26 in the U.S. via Capitol Records. The set boasts the same 12 song track list as the European version of the album (Australian and Japanese pressings featured additional tracks), which was released last October and has since sold more than 2 million copies, according to the label.
Lead single “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” has reached No. 1 in 17 countries, and appeared late last month at No. 39 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music: Club Play chart. Several U.S. radio stations, including Z100 New York and KISS-FM Los Angeles, are already playing the single, which has sold more than 3 million copies worldwide, according to Capitol.
While internationally successful — with eight albums and 32 top-20 U.K. singles to her credit — Minogue has achieved little more than a cult following in the U.S. She is perhaps best known in the region for her 1988 cover of “The Loco-Motion,” a No. 3 Billboard Hot 100 hit and just one of three songs she has placed on the chart. That single’s parent album peaked at No. 53 on The Billboard 200 in January 1989, and to date, remains Minogue’s lone entry on that chart.
Of late, Minogue’s U.S. triumphs have been largely relegated to the dancefloor, where she scored last year with “Butterfly,” from the 2000 album “Light Years,” which was not released stateside. That track peaked at No. 14 on the Hot Dance Music: Club Play chart.
Minogue has a European tour slated to kick off April 26 with four nights in Cardiff, Wales, and wrap June 18 in Milan. The artist plans to support the U.S. release of “Fever” with a tour sometime in 2002, according to a label spokesperson, but at deadline, no plans had yet been set.
Here is the track list for Kylie Minogue’s “Fever”:
“More More More”
“Love At First Sight”
“Can’t Get You Out of My Head”
“Give It to Me”
“Come Into My World”
“In Your Eyes”
