Pet Shop Boys announce New Album!

PET SHOP BOYS HAVE FINISHED THEIR NEW ALBUM  “ELYSIUM” WHICH WILL BE RELEASED IN SEPTEMBER ON PARLOPHONE.

 

A SHORT FILM BY ARTIST BRIAN BRESS ACCOMPANIES A BRAND NEW TRACK “INVISIBLE” AND CAN NOW BE VIEWED BELOW.

 


Pet Shop Boys recently returned to the UK from Los Angeles where they recorded their brand new studio album “Elysium” for release in September.

 
The album was co-produced by Pet Shop Boys with the young American engineer/producer, Andrew Dawson, who has won three Grammy awards for his work on Kanye West’s albums. Further information on the album, including a confirmed release date, will follow.

 

A single will be released to radio at the beginning of July but right now, to give a taste of the album’s sound, a short film for the album track “Invisible” can be viewed online at www.petshopboys.co.uk or on www.vevo.com. The film was made by renowned Los Angeles artist/film-maker Brian Bress.

 

“Elysium” was recorded earlier this year during the three months Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe spent in Los Angeles.

 

Producer Andrew Dawson recently said:  “It was really exciting for me to work with Pet Shop Boys – the breadth of their career has been phenomenal. They both have incredible ideas and I’ve definitely learned a few tricks from them on making records”.

 

Pet Shop Boys said today: “We wanted to make this album in a different environment. Despite frequent visits there we have never made an album in Los Angeles. Working there with Andrew Dawson has enabled us to make a very fresh-sounding album.”

 

Like several tracks on “Elysium”, “Invisible” features backing vocals by veteran singers Oren, Maxine and Julie Waters whose long career spans sessions with The Jackson Five to Adele, and singer/songwriter James Fauntleroy.
