Light Years is the seventh studio album by Australian singer Kylie Minogue. It was released on 25 September 2000 by Parlophone. The album's style was indicative of her return to "mainstream pop and dance tunes". It received favourable reviews from music critics, with some appreciating her fresh new pop roots and electronic music. Two weeks after debuting at number two on the Australian Albums Chart, the album reached the top position, making it Minogue's first number-one album in her native Australia. It was later certified four times platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA). Minogue promoted the album with television performances and interviews. It was further promoted with the On a Night Like This Tour, which visited Europe and Australia.
In Australia, Light Years debuted at number two on the ARIA Albums Chart on 2 October 2000. Three weeks later, the album rose to number one, becoming Minogue's first number-one album in her home country. It spent 41 weeks in the top 50 and subsequently received a quadruple-platinum accreditation from the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) for sales of over 280,000 copies. The album debuted and peaked at number two on the UK Albums Chart and was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), denoting shipments in excess of 300,000 units. Elsewhere, the album reached number eight in New Zealand, number 16 in Hungary, number 24 in Finland, number 26 in Sweden, number 28 in Switzerland, and number 35 in Germany.
