Kylie's new single is the best thing she's done in ages

There's an argument that Kylie's at her best when she's not being glitter cannoned pop gargantosaur KYLIE MINOGUE. Her most interesting songs are side projects (Where The Wild Roses Grow), cast-offs (Cherry Bomb) and remixes (the 10-minute reswizzle of Confide In Me).

So it's no surprise that Whistle, her movie soundtrack collaboration with experimental Icelandic band Múm, is better than anything on her last three studio albums. Kylie's hushed vocals are spookily desolate, as strings and beats fade in and out of focus behind her.

I can't hear the lyrics clearly enough to work out what's going on, but the song was written specifically for the film Jack And Diane, which has the most bonkers IMDB synopsis since Shark vs Octopus: "Jack and Diane, two teenage girls, meet in New York City and spend the night kissing ferociously. Diane's charming innocence quickly begins to open Jack's tough skinned heart. But, when Jack discovers that Diane is leaving the country in a week she tries to push her away. Diane must struggle to keep their love alive while hiding the secret that her newly awakened sexual desire is giving her werewolf-like visions."

Twilight has a lot to answer for, doesn't it?

Kylie also pops up in the film trailer, alongside recent Bafta rising star winner Juno Temple. It looks awful. As one YouTube comment puts it: "Like a cross between alien meets predator in a vagina."
