Aussie star covered This Wheel’s On Fire in a secret studio session. I ALREADY know it’s going to be my favourite film of the year and I haven’t even seen it yet. But now Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie has got even better, as one of my most-loved singers has recorded the classic theme.
Kylie is back in fashion, sweetie … we’ve mocked her up as Patsy
I am unbelievably excited to reveal that KYLIE MINOGUE has covered This Wheel’s On Fire, which featured in every episode of the original BBC sitcom.
Kylie recorded the song in a secret studio session and Ab Fab writer JENNIFER SAUNDERS was keen to keep her involvement under wraps, just like the scores of cameos in the movie. The track, a cover of BOB DYLAN’s 1975 song, is now available to pre-order on download — and it doesn’t disappoint.
It will be included in the show’s first feature-length film, in which Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone, played by Jennifer and JOANNA LUMLEY, escape to the French Riviera after shoving KATE MOSS into the Thames. I revealed the first screen shots from the movie in April and promise to keep you updated with further exclusives regarding the film everyone’s talking about.
Kylie said: “As a huge fan of the Ab Fab series and both Jennifer and Joanna, I’m over the moon to be singing the theme song.”
The Absolutely Fabulous Movie soundtrack will be released on July 1 – the same day it hits in cinemas in the UK. It arrives on July 22 in the US.
