STOP YOUR ENTIRE LIFE AND PUT THE NEEDLE ON IT.

Dannii Minogue is back. Sort of. Ish.

The legendary Minogue sibling is set to release an Australia-only greatest hits collection called This Is It: The Very Best Of on August 23, featuring just about every single of her career, beginning with her iconic 1990 debut, “Love & Kisses.”

The only problem? Unlike 2006′s The Hits & Beyond, it doesn’t actually include any new songs.

Well, it sort of does: This Is It includes her 2009 Kylie duet, a cover of ABBA‘s “The Winner Takes It All” (which will surely go down as one of the gayest things ever recorded in the history of time), as well as a track called “‘Cos You’re Beautiful.” Nope, not an Aloud cover — it’s a track that her X Factor mentee Ruth Lorenzo co-wrote. She actually filmed herself recording the track three years ago on her mini-documentary Style Queen, but it never surfaced in full — until now.

Words truly fail to describe my sincere love for Dannii Minogue’s back catalog. It’s utterly sublime — a brilliant blend of camptastic freestyle and R&B and cutting-edge disco pop. Everyone should know every single song she’s ever recorded — and that includes her 1997 experimental dolphin sex opus, “Everybody Changes Underwater.”

If you haven’t already immersed yourself in the almighty teachings of Disco D, grab this collection. And if you have them already — um, grab it anyway. (Lord knows, it’ll still be better than any album released in 2013.)

Plus, it benefits the Minogue family. Duh!
