    Default Kylie's BMG Deal

    So I've found a fairly recent interview with Alistair Norbury that seems to suggest that Kylie was originally contracted for only ONE album with BMG....which I found more than a little curious.

    I realise that they don't operate as a normal record label and that Kylie owns the rights to her recorded work and licences it to the company for distribution. I didn't expect a conventional contract such as a 5 album deal but I wonder....what was the plan were Golden to have not fared well financially? Was Kylie so disillusioned with her recording career that she considered a new album her last throw of the dice or did she plan to shop around after the release, depending on how it was received?

    The article can be found here:

    Is the article new? If so, he confirms the new album comes out next year.
    One million copies over two albums sounds huge but unlikely.

    Don't they work that basis with everyone? I'm sure a few artists either move on or do have success so it's jut one album.

    Not with established artists. Not normally.

    The way he words it as if she only wanted to commit to one album.

    The interview seems to be from 2021.

    Was he counting the greatest hits as one of the two albums?

    Edit: apparently not. Article was from 9th July 2022.

    Sorry if it came across that way. Wasn't my intention.

    When he mentions starting a new album it seems to suggest recording one - in which case he is referring to studio albums. Besides, the greatest hits didn't do big numbers, did it?
