Kim Wilde releases new tune ‘Pop Don’t Stop’

Kim Wilde has just released anew song, Pop Don’t Stop. It’s the first track of her forthcoming album Here Come The Aliens. 

To make the new record Kim returned to RCA Studios in London, the same studios where she recorded many of her hit albums from the 1980’s. The new album features 12 fresh new tunes produced by her brother Ricky Wilde, who also penned many of her big hits.

Pop Don’t Stop also features vocals from Ricky, the first time the two have sung together on a record, despite having worked and toured together for decades.

“Ricky and I share the same passion for pop,” says Kim. “We grew up together with the same influences, we speak the same language when it comes to all things musical. Some love affairs never die and our love affair with pop continues to this day, stronger than ever in fact!” Kim said of the new record.

The new album has been described as a celebration of pop music and includes elements of disco, new wave, electro and glam rock.

Kim Wilde first hit the charts in 1981 with Kids in America, she had a string of hits throughout the decade including Chequered Love, Cambodia, You Came, Keep Me Hangin’ On, Love is Holy, Never Trust a Stranger and View from a Bridge.

The new album will be the fourteenth in Kim’s long career, quite a feat when you consider she took more than a decade off when she spent time to raise her family. It’ll also be her first full album of original material following a covers album, and a Christmas themed record.

Back in 2013 Kim chatted to OUTinPerth and told us about how she’d found new interests outside of pop music during her decade long break. Alongside raising her children she also built up an impressive career as a horticulturalist and broadcaster.
