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 form to be able to fit on the physical disc. "Please Stay" and "Chocolate" are the only two singles released from this era that do not appear on the album in a remixed form. "Kids", the duet with Robbie Williams, also does not appear as at the time of the single's release no remixes were ever commissioned.

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]
