A cool blend of contemporary & retro culture

Lights! Models! Guest list! And now music…


Yes, sweetie, darlings, the producers of Absolutely Fabulous have gone all fash-mag-slag-clever and crossed over into the music industry, releasing a compilation album of songs to coincide with the new movie release.

Some of the tracks will feature in the film; others are just glamorously (sometimes, trashily) inspired by it.

Featured on the soundtrack of sorts is Kylie Minogue, covering the Bob Dylan-penned theme tune This Wheel’s On Fire, which originally appears in the ‘Ab Fab’ TV series, sung prior by Debbie Harry and Ade Edmondson (incidentally the name ‘Eddie Monsoon’ was inspired by Ade’s name).

In addition to Kylie’s cover of a cover, there are original tracks by Jason Derulo, Paloma Faith, Santigold and La Roux; and classic material by the likes of Serge Gainsbourg, Nancy Sinatra and Leonard Cohen.

A very mixed bag, then, like all those accessories spilling out of Eddie’s huge Hermes tote.  Antonino Tati


‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’ soundtrack is out through Rhino on August 4, the same date as the film’s release.
