After a knockout Aphrodite-inspired appearance at the 2012 Brits earlier this week, Queen Kylie Minogue spoke to Metro about her plans for the upcoming “K25” celebration in 2012–as well as a new album in 2013.

From Metro:

‘I have started on new music already. It should be ready for 2013,’ the pop princess said, who has been celebrating her K25 milestone in the musical mecca of Abbey Road Studios.

The 43-year-old is arming herself with a few geniuses for the follow-up to her 2010 No.1 album Aphrodite.

‘It’s a few different people,’ she said, refusing to name names but promising fans her new offering is ‘really exciting and different’.

Thanks to a few not-so-subtle hints on Twitter, we already know that Kylie’s been hitting the studio with Bonnie McKee (Katy Perry, Britney Spears), Greg Kurstin and Karen Poole–a SMASH HIT team of superb pop scribes.

(Kurstin and Poole previously worked together with Kylie to craft “Wow,” “No More Rain” and “Magnetic Electric” off of X.)

With a performance coming up in Sydney for the Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras Party on March 3 (her grand return after 14 years!) and plenty of surprises coming up for K25, it looks like we’re in store for much, much more Minogue.
