If you didn’t know Kylie had an album out, then don’t worry, it turns out you weren’t the only one. The Australian pop princess and former Neighbours star has reportedly left her long-time record label, Parlophone, after fifteen years following disappointing sales of her latest album, Kiss Me Once.

The 46-year-old I Can't Get You Out Of My Head hit-maker released her studio album in March this year, but it has only sold a dismal 60,000 copies internationally to date.

A source says, "The deal with Parlophone has come to a natural end. She has the option to re-sign with them, but has decided against it because of what happened with Kiss Me Once.

"Kylie is one of the world's leading pop stars, so she was bitterly disappointed about the performance of her album. Kylie did everything she could, even agreeing to be a judge on The Voice (U.K.) for a year, which is something she would've liked to avoid."

Kylie became a judge on the British version of the reality TV show for the first time this year, but confirmed in April that she had quite the show after just one season.
