Shears was making the Scissor Sisters' Night Work
album with Stuart Price, whose work on the Killers' "Human
" had been an inspiration for the early Aphrodite
sessions. "In the most caring, loving, GBF [gay best friend] kind of way," Minogue recalled to Billboard
magazine with a laugh, "Jake basically pestered me to work with Stuart." As a result, Parlophone president Miles Leonard enlisted Price as executive producer for the album in December 2009.
