"Light Years" is the seventh album by Australian singer Kylie Minogue and was released in 2000. It reached number two in the United Kingdom and one on the Australian album charts. "Light Years" is largely seen as Minogue's "comeback" album as it saw her return to her pop roots and to the top of the charts.In 2001,EMI mentioned the album sold 2 million worldwide.

The special edition album was released on March 5, 2001. For the Australian edition, Minogue's remake of Olivia Newton-John's "Physical" was included on the second CD, following popular performances of the song on the tour.
