Kylie Minogue’s “Confide In Me” Is 20: See Steve Anderson’s Tweets About The Recording Process

37fba3ddf12ee8defd965e607941f54d Kylie Minogue’s “Confide In Me” Is 20: See Steve Anderson’s Tweets About The Recording Process

Kylie Minogue staged one of the most impressive career reinventions of all time when “Confide In Me” dropped on this day (August 29) in 1994. After releasing four massively successful albums of (glorious) bubblegum pop, the Australian diva switched labels and reemerged with a haunting Brothers In Rhythm-produced indie-pop anthem that still seethes and seduces 20 years later.

Despite the startling change of genre, “Confide In Me” was an instant hit. It became the pop icon’s first number one record in Australia since 1988 and landed at number two on the UK chart. It even managed to find an audience in the US — reaching number 39 on the Billboard Club Chart. More importantly, the song finally showcased Kylie’s vocal ability (there was genuine surprise that she could, you know, actually sing) and established her as a credible artist.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Confide In Me”, Steve Anderson (one half of Brothers In Rhythm) shared some secrets about the recording process on Twitter. For starters, did you know that there’s a gated didgeridoo in the “stick or twist” breakdown? Mind blown! He also posted the original lyric sheet (above) and revealed that the much-loved B-side “If You Don’t Love Me” was recorded in one take. Learn all these is to know about the classic hit after the jump.
