Boombox (subtitled The Remix Album 2000–2008) is a remix album by Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue. It was released by Parlophone on 17 December 2008. The album contains remixes produced between 2000 and 2008, including a remix of the previously unreleased title track, "Boombox".

Background[edit]

Most of the remixes featured on the compilation are edited down from their original length to be able to fit on the physical disc. The album's liner notes include referencing to where each remix was sourced and the catalogue number of their original release; The One (Bitrocka Mix) and Boombox (LA Riots Remix) being the exception as they are previously unreleased. Many of the remixes are sourced from rare promotional vinyl. "Please Stay" and "Chocolate" are the only two singles commissioned by Parlophone between 2000 and 2009 that do not appear on the album in a remixed form.

On 11 December 2008, it was announced that the album would be released in the United States, to coincide with her nomination for the Grammy Awards of 2009.[6]
