Kylie Minogue & Gloria Gaynor 'Can't Stop Writing Songs About You' by Sophie Muller

Rob Ulitski - 4th Apr 2022

Hold on to your horses as two disco divas unite on the dancefloor - via the magic of music video - as Kylie gets together with none other than Gloria Gaynor, of I Will Survive fame, in Sophie Muller's dazzling video for Can't Stop Writing Songs About You. 

On a glittering runway, it's vintage disco vibes as we see Kylie and her crew strut their stuff under scintillating lights, with a lo-fi aesthetic that looks ripped straight from the clubkid era. 

Gaynor appears in a separate performance vignette, backdropped by the night sky and overlaid with hypnotising effects and soft pastel silhouettes - which feels reminiscent of another iconic Muller video, for No Doubt's Simple Kind Of LifeAnd its art directed by her longtime collaborator, production designer Alison Dominitz.  

Once again Sophie has also teamed with Theo Adams, whose company of performers provides Kylie's world with that extra pinch of pizzazz, and the result is a powerhouse visual for an irresistable track, pairing very nicely with previous Muller-Minogue videos for her other collabs on the new version of her Disco album - with Olly of Years & Years on A Second To Midnight, and with Jessie Ware on the telenovela-style Kiss Of Life.
