Kylie Minogue reunites with SAW
Kylie Minogue has teamed with her former producers Stock, Aitken and Waterman to work on her new Christmas single.
Kylie Minogue is reuniting with Stock, Aitken and Waterman (SAW) in a bid to take the Christmas number one spot.
The 47-year-old singer has turned to producers Mike Stock, Matt Aitken and Pete Waterman - who launched her pop career in the late 1980s - for help on her track 'Every Day's Like Christmas', bringing the trio back together for the first time in almost 25 years.
Pete said: "The three of us have not done a single for 25 years. We have never fallen out but there was never a purpose where we thought it was worth working together.
"I told the others this is what Kylie wants and they said, 'Let's do it -- return at the top'."
According to the former 'Pop Idol' judge, Kylie approached the trio to work on the track - which was written by Coldplay's Chris Martin - because she and her record company wanted it to be "dead retro" with "nothing modern".
He told The Sun newspaper: "It's a strange question when someone asks, 'Can you step back in time and make a record you would have made in 1988?' But of course we can, and Kylie loved it.
"I did worry about tampering with a Chris Martin song in any way. I wasn't sure Chris Martin and Stock Aitken Waterman would be easy bedfellows but he said it was fine."
And the song could be the start of a full reunion for the producers - who previously also worked with the likes of Jason Donovan, Bananarama, Sinitta and Rick Astley - as they had such a good time.
Pete said: "We enjoyed working together and with modern technology we can do so much more."
