The Aussie is already planning her next album – despite only just releasing country-inspired record Golden in April.
The icon will go back to her pop roots to capitalise on her recent resurgence.
Fans had to wait four years between her last studio hits.
But I can reveal Kylie wants to get back in the recording studio ASAP after scrapping plans to slow down her music career.
My source said: “Kylie was pulling back on her music career to concentrate on her personal life but has had a bit of a U-turn.
“She was worried she was getting too old to still be relevant and to have another hit record.
“But fans’ reaction to her last album Golden has exceeded all expectations and made her fall in love with music once more.
“Golden has been a huge commercial success, hitting No.1 both here and in Australia.
“She wants to keep the momentum going by getting back in the studio immediately. The initial plan is to go back to her pop-dance roots.”
British DJ and producer Sigala also confirmed Kylie was working on new material.
The former Neighbours star features on his up-and-coming single.
He said: “I’ve just finished the Kylie song. There’s been so much buzz about it already, it will definitely be a single.
“It’s going back to the Kylie that everyone knows and loves.
“She loves it and has asked me if I can write some more music for her next record.”
Kylie has just been announced as the headline act for Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park on September 9, while Sigala recently released new single Feels Like Home, with Fuse ODG, Sean Paul and Kent Jones.

The couple got together a year ago while on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls.
Matt’s not Mad after deal axed
MATT Terry says he could easily have lost the plot after losing his record deal with RCA.
But the 2016 X Factor winner decided to follow his love of musical theatre instead.
Matt told me: “I could have got smashed every night, gone crazy, lost my mind and felt sorry for myself.
“Or I could just move on and look forward to what comes next.”
Matt will play the lead in a UK tour of Madagascar The Musical.
He said: “I’m really excited. Musical theatre was my first love.
“Before X Factor I got to the final few for Thriller Live, Kinky Boots and Book Of Mormon.”
Matt also revealed fellow XF champ James Arthur got in touch after he was ditched.
He added: “He just said we all have our own path in life and what we achieved winning X Factor was an amazing achievement, which no-one can ever take away.”

The reality TV stars were chatting at Caudwell’s charity gig.
A Quick fix
NEWLY single Jake Quickenden has denied going on a date with Made In Chelsea’s Emily Black- well – but it appears she never got the memo.
Denying the rumours, Jake, who recently split from fiancée Danielle Fogarty, told me: “We were out in a group and Emily came along.
“We had a drink and said hello but I’m just out of a relationship and not looking for anything or ready for dating.”
But when ex-MIC babe Emily turned up to the same Caudwell Children Butterfly Ball 15 minutes later, she giggled: “Jake’s a lovely guy. He’s a friend but I’m single so whatever happens happens.”
It seems the jury is still out on this one.
Kath puts foot down
WELSH warbler Katherine Jenkins has laughed off claims ex-fiancé Gethin Jones dumped her because she has long toes.
The classical singer hit back at rumours she has ugly trotters – revealing they are her husband Andrew Levitas’ fifth favourite body part on her.
Katherine said: “There’s nothing wrong with my toes. My husband actually tells me that my toes are his fifth favourite body part of mine. You will have to work out the rest.”
A super-trim Katherine performed at the Classical BRIT Awards after recently giving birth.
She added: “I haven’t been able to start exercising yet but I did spinning and yoga as close to the birth as I could.”
Katherine has just signed a new record deal with Decca and is working in the studio.
Came Here For Love singer Ella Eyre is in a Love Island WhatsApp chat group with over 100 randoms.
The ITV2 show’s superfan revealed: “We started a chat group last year and more people are constantly being added.
“Even though we are constantly culling people who don’t respond, it has way over 100 people, most of them I don’t know. The group is more addictive than the show.”
Ella, who is riding high in the charts with Answerphone, added: “Adam is a snake and Eyal is a wimp.”
FORMER The Saturdays star Una Healy hopes to do what the group never managed – conquer the US.
The Irish solo singer’s rugby-playing hubby Ben Foden is currently in final talks to sign for a New York team.
Una said: “It will be a new territory for me to explore and release my music out there.
“The Saturdays never cracked America so no-one will have a clue who I am out there.”
But UK and Irish fans need not worry.
Una added: “I will still be releasing music back home all the time.
“I already have another album worth of songs ready but will probably put out an EP instead.”
Una’s headline tour plays Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester and London this week.
Tickets are still available and her new single Never See Me Cry is out now.
