Unleashed is a compilation album by Australian dance-pop singer Dannii Minogue. It was released by Rhino Entertainment and Warner Music UK on 5 November 2007. As this was a budget release compilation, it was ineligible for the UK Albums chart.

Album History[edit]

The album contains unreleased tracks and remixes chosen by the singer.[2] Commenting on the album's release, Minogue said, "This album is about my personal favourites - bringing you the best unreleased material, including club mixes that were number one and songs I've written with my favourite producers around the world."[3]

An edited version of the cover art exists in later pressings of the album, where the cutout section of Dannii's leotard is covered up.[4]

The original track listing as advertised on play.com featured four additional tracks. "Weak", "Fear of Flying", "Karma Is a Bitch" and "Healing on the Dancefloor", composed by Swedish production duo Korpi & Blackcell, disappeared from the final release. Permission to use the tracks was not granted due to lack of financial incentive from the record company to the producers. The four tracks eventually leaked on SoundCloud in September 2011.

The Platinum Collection was originally planned for release in 2006 by Minogue's former label Warner Bros. Records, as part of a series of back catalogue compilations released for other artists on their roster.
