New PSB single, album release info

Pet Shop Boys have announced their new album should be out March next year with a single to precede, at this stage Love Etc, co-written with Xenomania. The long-awaited album, now in final mixing stages, contains a number of tracks from the production and writing team behind Girls Aloud, Sugababes and Annie. But it won't all be swizzled-up 60s pop confections. Orchestral arrangements accompany at least two other known tracks, Legacy and Beautiful People, full string and brass sections have been recorded, and legendary ex-Smiths and Electronic guitarist, and longtime PSB-collaborator, Johnny Marr, featured on a number of tracks during the sessions. Behaviour meets Very perhaps?

In the meantime fingers crossed for a PSB mix of The Loving Kind, their co-written track for Girls Aloud, while mixes for their Sam Taylor-Wood production I'm In Love With A German Film Star, featuring Neil's backing vocals, are now available on UK iTunes. Check out this awesome Stuck In The 80s Mix by Mark Reeder.

Very exciting! I loved their last album 'Fundamental' and they played around with some nice orchestral sounds in a few tracks on that.
