It seems like only a short while ago we got the album “Elysium” from The Pet Shop Boys. And now they’re releasing a new album called “Electric” in June, produced by Stuart Price. The teaser below hints of a nu-italo sound, and a much more upbeat approach than “Elysium”.
In hindsight it almost feels like that somber, mellow album was a bit of a goodbye, as they’re now also saying their adieu to Parlophone – their label for the last 28 years. They’re now on Kobalt Label Services on a global deal. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe says this:
- We are hugely proud of the new album and are very pleased to be working in conjunction with Kobalt. We’d like to thank everyone we’ve worked with at Parlophone over the last 28 years both in the UK and abroad. When we signed to the label in 1985 we had no idea how long and successful a relationship we were embarking on. However it is also exciting now to commence a new phase working with a new team in a new business structure and we look forward to a creative and equally fulfilling relationship with Kobalt.
