This image was placed next to the release date information for the new album on iTunes earlier today. It has since been removed. Could just as well be a promo photo..

Pet Shop Boys meet The Cure. If it's that I like it.

It's also a bit Nightlife, isn't it?

I can feel the hype. If ever they use this as an album cover I 100% understand why.

I really wish this isn't true. There's no design here. Just two people's reflections on the matte metallic wall.
Just ask yourself. Would you enjoy watching this picture while listening to the new album?

For some reason, I really like it. Hope it's true. Also, I like it when it's them on the cover instead of some tired font.

I don't like it.
It seems like nothingness, but in an unironic way.
To me it looks like it's from the Elysium photo session, with the tan pillar to the left between them and the light coloured sky background.

Why is it blurred, are the boys that aged that not only they cannot appear in music videos but they have to blur the image to such an extreme?
I was thinking it would be a welcome change to have the duo actually be depicted in a studio album cover art, and I'm not entirely against this idea.

My other concern is the lack of definition for smaller image sizes. Here's a demonstration of the thumbnail and preview size of this supposed album art.

It doesn't really jump out at you, does it?
Looks like New Order's Brotherhood.

I suppose there's something appealing about a deliberately unpopular album art, and the lack of definition may help the music speak for itself.
I would expect the art to represent PSB in 2020, and this blur effect to me isn't a popular or trendy style if you look at other recent album covers from other artists.

At least it's not another geometric shape with rainbow colours on a white background!
