Kylie Minogue is an Australian pop singer. She began her career as an actress in the soap opera Neighbours and in 1987 commenced her career as a pop artist, working with the UK songwriting/production trio Stock, Aitken & Waterman.
During the mid to late 90s, Minogue distanced herself from her earlier work and tried to establish herself as a credible and independent performer and songwriter. However, her albums failed to attract a substantial audience and resulted in the lowest sales of her career to date.
Kylie returned to popularity as a pop artist in 2000. She released her second official greatest hits album in November 2004, entitled Ultimate Kylie. The album introduced two new songs that were released as singles: "I Believe In You", co-written with Jake Shears and Babydaddy from the Scissor Sisters, and "Giving You Up".
"Giving You Up" was one of the songs that came from the sessions with the Xenomania team in 2004. The single was released in 2005, with "Made Of Glass" appearing as a b-side. It's believed that "Made Of Glass" was going to be passed on to Rachel Stevens, who would record it and and release it on her album Come And Get It, but it was released commercially by Kylie as a b-side.
While working with Xenomania, Kylie also recorded "Loving You". Although it has never been released, a demo of the song leaked in 2004.
In 2010, Xenomania contributed with two songs for the album Aphrodite. "Mighty Rivers" and "Heart Strings" both appeared as bonus tracks.
