"As I mentioned earlier, tomorrow we are re-releasing the album ‘Close’, remastered and repackaged on a double cd set. I can’t believe it’s been 25 years since it came out and I’m very very proud of this double cd celebration of an album that did rather well for me back in 1988, when I was also touring with Michael Jackson on the ‘Bad’ tour. Amazing memories of that time. And there are personal sleevenotes and track by track stories and previously unreleased mixes, all that kind of stuff. If you’re a fan of the original album you’re gonna love this. And actually I’m gonna tour the album around Christmas time with a festive flair, Kim Wilde’s Christmas Party, so hopefully I’ll get to see some of you out on the road.
And of course my secret song this week has to come from that album, I hope you’ll forgive me. It’s the one that I love to perform on my set. I’m gonna dedicate it to my husband today, on our 18 year anniversary. Love you baby."
