Pet Shop Boys

Nonetheless

    UK electronic pop icons Pet Shop Boys return with a brand-new studio album ‘Nonetheless’ on April 26, preceded by first single ‘Loneliness’.

    Produced by James Ford, the music on ‘Nonetheless’ is both uplifting and reflective, mixing electronics, live instruments, and orchestral arrangements. The songs are very melodic and quintessentially Pet Shop Boys with a fresh, open sound, bringing together classic strands of PSB song-writing and moving them in new directions.

    Having sold in excess of 50 million records, Pet Shop Boys are easily the most successful UK duo of all time. BRIT awards and Grammy nominations have been numerous, including in 2009 when Pet Shop Boys won the BRIT for outstanding contribution to music; in 2000 Pet Shop Boys’ song-writing was rewarded with the Ivor Novello award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music - with over 70 hit singles spanning five decades, song-writing remains resolutely at the core of Pet Shop Boys’ continuing relevance and success.

    Monkey Business

      The U.K.'s most successful musical duo continue to absolutely nail synth-pop satire on their latest LP "Hotspot", offering arch observations on the endless banality of modern existence over a slew of boogie-tinged electronic jams which manage to befriend the club, radio and home stereo alike. Our own Kickin' Pigeon was raving about this lead single a couple of weeks back when he heard it on the beeb (other radio stations are available) and he was bang on the money, highlighting the slick strings, cascading horns and sweet sequences as well as the life affirming lyrics. Alongside the exuberance of the original mix, we get a softer and spacier variant from Prins Thomas and a pumping filter-house refix from Friend Within, as well as non album track "At Rock Bottom", which seems to sing out from the depths of a month long come down.

      Monkey Business (Friend Within Remix)

      "Hotspot" was mostly recorded in Hansa Studios, Berlin, and mixed in The Record Plant, Los Angeles. It was produced and mixed by Stuart Price and features ten brand new Tennant/Lowe tracks including the single "Dreamland" featuring Years & Years, which was released in September. Another of the songs, "Burning the heather", features Bernard Butler on guitar and was recorded at RAK Studios in London.

      Pet Shop Boys say:
      'We've written much of our music over the last ten years in Berlin and it was an exciting experience to work on this album in the legendary Hansa studios there and add a new dimension to our sound.'

      The album is the last installment of the trilogy of PSB albums produced by Stuart Price, following "Electric" in 2013 and "Super" in 2016.


      STAFF COMMENTS

      Matt says: I heard PSB ont 6 Music this morning talking about how the inspiration for "Monkey Business" was taken from wandering around Texas talking to cowboys. It's an brilliantly catchy track and the whole album finds the likely lads in top form as always. What a legacy!

      Say It To Me - Inc. Real Lies / Tom Demac / Offer Nissim / Stuart Price Remixes

        You don't sell over 50 million records worldwide or become the most successful duo in UK music history without knowing a thing or two about a decent tune, and Pet Shop Boys bring their cultivated taste to the fore for this expertly curated remix 12" of recent single "Say It To Me". First up to the plate are London's foremost punk-funkers Real Lies, who follow up a festival smashing summer with this dreamy, dopamine infused rework of the legendary duo. Skittering rhythms and swelling synths abound as the London trio make everything soft and hazy. Next up Tom Demac brings some of the bass-heavy club sound he's dropped on Aus and Hypercolour, transforming the lovelorn original into a skipping and swinging UK house monster which should get plenty of mainroom play in the coming months. Over on the B1, Eurovision winner and occasional Brian Cox lookalike Offer Nissim takes the reins, showing us exactly why he's bagged four appearances in DJ Mag's Top 100, with a shimmering glitter-tinged house rework for the sophisticated dancefloor. Elegant and euphoric, this is the audio equivalent of necking GHB at a designer fashion show. Finally, super producer and man of many names Stuart Price delivers an alternate mix of his album version, layering tropical sounding keys and dizzying fx over a swaying beat. It's another winner from the mighty Pet Shop Boys.

        Super

          Pet Shop Boys release their brand new studio album, 'Super'. Produced and mixed by Stuart Price in Los Angeles, it features 12 new Tennant / Lowe compositions including the lead single, 'The Pop Kids’.

          Continuing the more upbeat themes and sounds set by 2013's 'Electric', 'Super' takes its influences from the duo's 1980s and 90s heyday, referencing synth-pop and early 90s house, along with more up to date EDM sounds to great effect.

          Electric

            Pet Shop Boys return in triumphant form with their new studio album 'Electric', the first to appear on their own label x2 and produced by Stuart Price.

            'Electric' features nine tracks in total - eight brand new Pet Shop Boys' songs plus a cover of Bruce Springsteen's 'The Last To Die'. The result is as uncompromising a collection of dance anthems as Pet Shop Boys have ever made.

            Pet Shop Boys said: "'Electric' is very much set on the dance floor. Our latest album often evolves as a response to our previous album and, whereas 'Elysium' had a reflective mood, 'Electric' is pretty banging! And working with Stuart Price on a studio album is something we have wanted to do for a very long time".
