The album track listing is:
The Pop Kids
The dictator decides
Sad robot world
Say it to me
Into thin air
The first single to be released from the album is ‘The Pop Kids’, a classic PSB anthem which evokes the London club scene of the early 90s.
Pet Shop Boys have also confirmed a residency of four very special concerts at London’s Royal Opera House on July 20, 21, 22, 23. Entitled ‘Inner Sanctum’, the concerts will be the only opportunity to see this brand new, site-specific Pet Shop Boys show which is being staged by long-term PSB designer Es Devlin and choreographer Lynne Page.
Pet Shop Boys said today: “It was fantastic to be back in the studio with Stuart Price continuing from where we left off with ‘Electric’ and we’re thrilled with the results. It’s also very exciting to take electronic music into the Royal Opera House – such a grand and beautiful venue. These will be four very special nights for us and our only UK concerts this year.”
