Wheels On Fire

Release date: TBC Label: Rhino


Just when you think Absolutely Faboulous cannot get any better, enter our favourite pop princess KYLIE!!!!!

Appropriate for their big screen debut,Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone(Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley) are still oozing glitz and glamour, living the high life they are accustomed to: shopping, drinking and clubbing their way around London’s trendiest hotspots.

But when they accidentally push KateMoss into the River Thames at an über-fashionable launch party, Eddy andPatsy become entangled in a media storm surrounding the supermodel’s untimely demise and are relentlessly pursued by the paparazzi. Fleeing penniless to the glamorous playground of the super-rich, the French Riviera, they hatch a plan to make their escape permanent and live the high life forever more!

‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’ is released by Fox Searchlight Pictures across the UK and Irelandon July 1st.

To coincide, Rhino will release the accompanying soundtrack on the same day. The album has today been launched with the exciting news that Kylie has recorded her own unique take on the classic ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ theme song ‘This Wheel’s On Fire’ which is now available at iTunesand for streaming.

Kylie commented: “As a huge fan of the 'Ab Fab' series and both Jennifer and Joanna, I'm over the moon to be singing the theme song, 'This Wheel’s on Fire’.” 

Originally written by Bob Dylan and Rick Danko, the theme song became synonymous with the show having been recorded firstly by Julie Driscoll and Adrian Edmondson, and subsequently byDeborah Harry and Edmondson.
