The 53-year-old Australian artist released the original version of the song and accompanying music video, which you can see below, earlier this year on October 6 as the lead single for her Guest List Edition release of her 2020 album Disco. (Minogue released the second single “Kiss of Life” featuring Jessie Ware on October 29.)
Minogue announced the new release and thanked the drag icon, Harsh, on social media, writing to her two-plus-million followers on Twitter, “Thank you to the ICON @jodieharsh for this incredible remix of A Second To Midnight. @yearsandyears which is out NOW, have a great NYE Lovers! Kylie.lnk.to/MidnightRemixTW“
To celebrate the new year, Minogue will be joining Years & Years with a performance tonight as part of BBC One’s The Big New Years & Years Eve Party with Kylie and Pet Shop Boys.
For the artist, Disco brought Minogue a great deal of success and fame this year. It made her the first female artist ever to have the U.K. No. 1 album in five consecutive decades. Minogue is also the highest-selling female Australian artist of all time. She has sold now well over 80 million records worldwide.
And let us say, Happy New Year, dear readers. It’s been a joy to journey through 2021 with you and with all hope, 2022 will show us a bright light at the end of this tunnel. As always, music will help show the way!
