Kylie announced on Instagram on Thursday that ‘a limited series of Especially For You with @jdonofficial will be available on vinyl and cassette on August 5th to bring back more memories from the 80s !!’

Jason was just as excited about the re-release of their love ballad and said “It was really fun working with Kylie on Especially For You.”

The song was first released in November 1988 weeks after their characters in Neighbors, Scott and Charlene, were hit in a special wedding episode that attracted nearly 20 million British viewers.

The blonde superstar, 54, brought back her iconic curls to repeat her role as Charlene Robinson to play alongside Jason, who plays her husband Scott, in the final episode of the iconic soap.

Kylie posted photos of the couple together on her Instagram account, “Now We Are Together Again,” referring to their hit song.

The pint-sized pop star wore her character’s famous mechanic overalls for what would be her last appearance in the canceled series.

Kylie’s appearance is coming when the cast filmed their final scenes after the show was removed in March after 37 years.

The besieged soap opera faced an uncertain future after its cancellation of the original network Channel 5, where it has spent the last 14 of its 37 years on British television.

Fremantle Media, the production company responsible for its development, confirmed that the series would be taken off the air indefinitely over the summer after a ‘comprehensive search for alternative financing’ ended in failure.

Back in the '80s, Neighbors were unstoppable, launching both Kylie and Jason into successful entertainment careers.
