"Word Is Out" is a song written by English duo Stock and Waterman for Kylie Minogue's fourth album Let's Get to It (1991). Produced by Mike Stock and Pete Waterman, it was released the first single from Minogue's album Let's Get to It.

Reception[edit]

The song received negative reception from music critics, although they praised the new-jack-dance track and production. The song was released as the first single in the summer of 1991 and was a top twenty hit in the United Kingdom, reaching number sixteen which ended Minogue's unprecedented run of consecutive top 10 hits. In Australia, with the more laid back Summer Breeze Mix as the main mix, it peaked at number ten, becoming Minogue's tenth single to chart within the top ten. The Summer Breeze Mix received a UK release on a one-sided limited edition 12" vinyl single which had an engraved autograph on the b-side, making it highly collectable for fans.

Music video[edit]

Directed by James LeBon, it was filmed in London's famous Camden market and featured British television presenter Davina McCall as one of Minogue's dancers.
