Years & Years have announced that a new Kylie Minogue-featuring remix of their recent single ‘Starstruck’ will be released on Friday (May 21).

Posting on Twitter this morning (May 19), Alexander confirmed that Minogue has provided guest vocals for a new remix of ‘Starstruck’ that is now set for release this Friday.


“I cannot believe I’m actually typing this (!!!), but this Friday a remix of ‘STARSTRUCK’ will be released with the legend @kylieminogue,” he wrote.

“Wow!!! I love you kylie !! I am so excited for you all to hear this LOVERS!!!”

Alexander recently starred in the official video for ‘Starstruck’, and described the track in a statement as being “about the rush you get when you’re with somebody you’re really into, it’s about holding onto a good feeling and not letting it go”.

“Like most of us I’ve spent the past year at home, and I wanted to create something super positive and fun for people (and myself) to bop along too,” he added. “Whatever we’re doing or wherever we are in life, I think we all deserve three minutes of interstellar ecstasy.”


News of the Kylie collaboration follows on from Alexander’s performance as Years & Years with Elton John at the BRIT Awards last week. The two artists duetted on a cover of Pet Shop Boys‘ ‘It’s A Sin’.
