Step Back in Time: The Definitive Collection is the fourth major greatest hits album by Australian singer Kylie Minogue. It was released on 28 June 2019 by BMG Rights Management. The compilation was made available in a variety of formats, including a two-disc edition, a picture disc vinyl and five limited edition cassette formats. The album includes "New York City", a previously unreleased song written during sessions for her fourteenth studio album, Golden (2018).[2] The album debuted atop the charts in Australia and the United Kingdom.

Background[edit]

Step Back in Time: The Definitive Collection is Minogue's fourth major greatest hits album, following the previous albums Greatest Hits (1992), Ultimate Kylie (2004) and The Best of Kylie Minogue (2012). The compilation takes its name from her 1990 single, "Step Back in Time", and is Minogue's first major greatest hits album under her contract with BMG. Step Back in Time: The Definitive Collection was released in various formats; a standard two-disc and deluxe book edition, a standard black vinyl and a mint-coloured and picture disc edition, and five limited-edition cassette formats.[3]

Minogue began hinting at the compilation's release on 27 April, posting images on social media from the "Step Back in Time" music video, along with a countdown on her official website which was set to end on 3 May, but later moved forward to 2 May.[4] Following this change, the countdown then displayed the album's slogan: "Pop Precision Since 1987".[5] The release of the album and its single was then announced on 2 May, with pre-orders available that day.[2]

Promotion[edit]

In order to promote the compilation, Minogue appeared on both The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 and The Graham Norton Show on 3 May.[6] On 3 June, she was interviewed on The One Show.[7]

Singles[edit]

"New York City" was released as a single from the compilation on 3 May 2019, premiering on BBC Radio 2 the same day.[8][2] The song was originally a demo for Minogue's fourteenth studio album, Golden (2018). Due to demand and acclaim from fans and critics, the song was subsequently completed and released the following year.[9][10]

Tour[edit]

Minogue embarked on her Summer 2019 tour to promote the album, consisting of 15 shows across Europe. The tour included her performance at the legend slot at the Glastonbury Festival 2019.[11]
