"Giving You Up" is a song recorded by Australian singer Kylie Minogue for her third greatest hits album Ultimate Kylie (2004). The song was released as the album's second and final single on 28 March 2005. It was written by Miranda Cooper, Brian Higgins, Tim Powell, Lisa Cowling, Paul Woods, Nick Coler, and Minogue, while production was by Higgens and Xenomania. The song is a dance-pop track, which features instrumentation of synthesizers and keyboards. The track was her last solo single after she was diagnosed with breast cancer two months later, and resumed with 2007 single "2 Hearts".
"Giving You Up" received mixed reviews from music critics, who complimented Minogue's vocals but dismissed the production and composition. It peaked inside the top ten in both Australia and the United Kingdom, and also charted in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, and Finland. Alex and Martin commissioned the accompanying music video for the single, which shows Minogue as a giantess and walking around the streets of London. "Giving You Up" has only been performed on her Showgirl: The Greatest Hits Tour in 2005.
