Kylie Minogue found writing her new album in Nashville like “therapy”.

The Australian star wrote her new album ‘Golden’ in the home city of country music and believes it was the perfect place to pen her new stuff.

The 49-year-old shared: “I hadn’t been there. I said to a few people, ‘I’m going to Nashville. Have you been there?’ They spoke with such excitement and love for the city, literally.

“They were giving me advice on which bar to go to and where to eat and blah blah blah …”

The singer, who ended her relationship with British actor Joshua Sasse at the turn of 2017, admitted the songwriting process proved to be cathartic for her.

Speaking on BBC Radio 2, she said: “Songwriting can be a bit like therapy; you have to feel comfortable to talk about personal things.”

The Australian beauty penned her new record in the midst of her relationship heartache and was determined to be as honest as possible.

She explained: “I was a little bit fragile when I started work on this album. I processed that.

“I just thought it was a really good time to be honest and work through everything and give a snapshot of where I am in my life. It was very rewarding.”
