Kylie Leakage - Broken Hearted (Love Love Love)

Someone call a plumber because Parlophone has sprung another leak! The fourth new Kylie track in as many weeks sparked a minor fan frenzy this morning when some bloggers prematurely announced "Broken Hearted (Love Love Love)" as the diva's new single. It's not. There's some confusion as to whether the song dates from the "X" sessions or was, in fact, recorded for the new album but a very reliable source tells me that it actually stems from a stand alone session with Richard Stannard. Meaning that it wasn't intended for any particular album - just a means of getting the creative juices flowing. I'm very relieved that "Broken Hearted (Love Love Love)" isn't the lead single. Not because the Biffco produced track is bad. It's the cutest thing I've heard in ages. The lyrics really strike a chord with me and I've already added the song to my 'love is a sadistic bitch' playlist. I just think Kylie needs to return with an upbeat pop explosion if she wants to win back the fans that have since moved on to Lady GaGa and Ke$ha. Leave the mid-tempo growers for B sides or bonus tracks. It gives the faithful something to look forward to and/or whinge about! While we wait for the real lead single to debut, enjoy the best Kylie reject since "Extraordinary Day". Love this to bits.

PS. Bravo to whoever designed the stunning mock cover that I stole from Say Hey!

So the other leaks are worse than this? I haven't heard them. It's almost like a Light Years album track. If she sings 'it's old news' then she's got that right.

You're right; it's incredibly cute, I love it.

But yes, thank god it isn't something on the new album, let alone the lead single.

I love it!!!!

According to Biffco's Twitter it's just Love Love Love.
Quite Agnes.

I totally LOVE LOVE LOVE the song. I think it could be nice as almost-a-ballad for the new album.

But as X session, it fits.

It's a nice enough track and to me seems to be a mix of I Don't Know What It Is and the far superior Better Than Today. Glad to hear it's just an old track from a stand alone session last year, the new album is supposedly "dancetastic"

thank you for the song : I really like it !
I hope someday Kylie will treat her fans like her sister Dannii and release a dozen compilation CDs made of her unreleased/leaked/demo tracks

Tres cute, but not Earth shattering. Any word on what the news will be on the 20th?

John - I'm not sure. My guess is that she'll announce the name of the new single or album. Perhaps we'll even get a release date!
