The next cover will have a star.
Because the album will be called stars.

Nice theory, but it's Electric.

That said, you can have cars that are electric, or are fuelled by old skool "super" fuel... maybe the trilogy will be rounded off with Unleaded, or Diesel? Ethanol?

:cry:

Come on! Drico. The first album cover was like a square, the second was a circle the third could be a triangle perfectly.

I have the same theory but with Lazers instead of Stars.

They're going to use a prism. The album is called "Darkside". It'll be a concept album about ambition, Brexit and Donald Trump, and the first planned single is called "Money".

^^^^^ Will Chris do a Syd Barrett? If he hasn't already. Can't be entirely sure who is under that disco ball helmet thing.

A triangle to symbolise the event when Stuart Price officially becomes the third Pet Shop Boy.
This is a song about boys and girls. You hear it playing all over the world.

It's time like this I'm glad the Pet Shop Boys already did their political album, and hopefully that will be disincentive for them to retread old ground.

Neil railing against identity cards and infringement by the state in 2006, and reflecting upon the failures of 20th century authoritarian regimes, was much better than current day Neil protesting and rejecting the sovereign will of the British people.

Except one song, which might not even make it onto the album, let's not speculate on how Brexit-y the album would be. I'd actually prefer no mention of Brexit from this point on, since the topic dissolves into chaos very quickly. Not that this is a notable topic either way. I'm excited for whatever Farrow comes up next, and I do think the Electric cover was very cool, like a sort of alien artifact, would love for them to strike that chord again. "Super" was alright, but too simplistic for my tastes. Perhaps more circles were needed?

Hello...

You mean fifth...after Pete and Farrow (et al).
