The Sun UK has revealed that our very own, Kylie Minogue has recorded the theme to the highly anticipated Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie in a secret studio session.

Never thought I’d hear ‘Kylie Minogue’ and ‘Bob Dylan’ mentioned in the same sentence, but the Pop Princess has covered Dylan’s 1975 tune ‘This Wheel’s On Fire’ for the British TV comedy’s movie adaptation.

Kylie isn’t the first person to tackle the track, which Dylan first performed with The Band – the song has also been covered by The Damned star Rat Scabies, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Elvis Costello.

Julie Driscoll teamed up with Brian Auger and The Trinity to score the biggest hit with the song in 1968, and Driscoll re-recorded the track with UK comic Adrian Edmondson for the Absolutely Fabulous TV series in the early 1990s.

The soundtrack to Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, which will be released on July 1, will also feature actress Jane Horrock’s rendition of Shirley Bassey classic ‘Big Spender’.
