Background and release
"Raining Glitter" was written in Nashville, Tennessee during Kylie's two week visit in 2017. She stated in an interview that White was talking about disco, to which she responded "I love disco, but you know the brief."; they managed to blend the two genres of country and disco to create the song; Kylie also stated that she'd been inspired by The Jacksons' video for "Can You Feel It", where glitter is being sprinkled everywhere.
The song was released as the album's first promotional single on 30 March 2018 onto all streaming servers.
"Raining Glitter" is a song that fuses elements of the country sound that was touched on in Golden, and Kylie's notorious disco style. The song incorporates acoustic guitars and a nu-disco bass line along with disco beats, hand claps, 'whooping' vocal effects and the use of a rhodes piano. The song was selected as one of the album's best tracks, described as a "joyful" and "fun" anthem.
"Raining Glitter" was first performed live during the Kylie Presents: Golden underplay shows in March 2018, as the third song in the set list. It was also included in her set list for her 2018 performance at G-A-Y. A chorus of "Raining Glitter" was performed during the Studio54 medley for the Golden Tour, which also featured unreleased song "New York City" and "On a Night Like This".
