About this album

X is the tenth studio album by Australian recording artist Kylie Minogue. It is her first release since the greatest hits compilation Ultimate Kylie (2004), and her first studio album since Body Language (2003). X was preceded by lead single “2 Hearts” and released worldwide in November 2007. The American release of X took place in April 2008, preceded by the single “All I See”. The final single from the album was “The One”, released in Australia on 28 July 2008.

Work on the album began following Minogue’s gradual recovery from breast cancer and subsequent radiotherapy treatment. Her cancer, which was diagnosed in May 2005, resulted in the postponement of Showgirl: The Greatest Hits Tour tour midway through its run. Minogue resumed the tour in late 2006, in the midst of recording X, and was completed later in the following year.

In addition to generally positive critical reception, X debuted at number one in Australia and at number four in the United Kingdom. The album was nominated for a BRIT Award for International Album, as well as a Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album, making it Minogue’s fifth Grammy Award nomination. According to The Times, the album had sold one million copies worldwide as of December 2008.

X debuted at number one on the ARIA Albums Chart with first-week sales of 16,000 copies, giving Minogue her third number-one album in her native Australia. The album remained in the top fifty for fourteen weeks, ultimately earning a Platinum certification from the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) for shipments in excess of 70,000 copies.
