Impossible Princess / Kylie Minogue?[edit]

With reference to:

See Impossible Princess for the 1998 album released in the UK as Kylie Minogue

and in the article for "Impossible Princess":

The album was retitled Kylie Minogue at the last minute in the UK following the death of Princess Diana in August 1997

Is this actually verifiable? It seems that these are completely different albums, released three years apart. Again, from the "Impossible Princess" article, and just above the previous quote:

The album was a commercial disappointment in the UK and only sold 44,000 copies(as of '98), far below Minogue's previous albums Kylie Minogue and Let's Get to It

Can somebody please look into this? I do not believe there were two Kylie albums, released in succession in the UK, titled "Kylie Minogue". (talk) 12:22, 5 March 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Actually both albums were released in the UK as "Kylie Minogue." The death of Princess Diana caused the record company to feel unsure about the title of the latter album, so both albums bore the title "Kylie Minogue" on the cover. 1994 album and the 1997 album are completely different, other than the titles. The latter album bore the title "Impossible Princess" in all territories it was released in, with the exception of the UK. HillbillyProfane (talk) 07:26, 9 December 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hmm, but I can't find any proof of this at all. All UK shops I've checked have the album as "Impossible Princess" - I haven't mananged to find a single copy labelled anything else. -- (talk) 06:24, 1 January 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Clarified US Release Info[edit]

The article mentioned a US release by Imago Records, which is incorrect. Imago released the single "Confide in Me" but the contract fell through before the album release. This is actually stated later in the article. I have edited the text of the first paragraph to clarify that a US release did not take place.

  • I prefer ALT2 – I think it is the most interesting hook. The article received the GA icon on 7 March, the nominator reviewed a DYK nom, the hook is interesting, and its source has been verified. I see no problems here. Nice work, Carbrera (talk) 16:39, 9 March 2021 (UTC).Reply[reply]
