As the Stuart Price trilogy/era is over, it would be great to have a CD with various rare or unreleased mixes/remixes from the period. Such as the Mike Mago Inside A Dream remix, their rsd remixes of Fluorescent, Boyz Noize dub of Axis, Eddie Amador dub/s for Thursday, Scene Kings Pop Kids remix on CD. I'm sure there's a few other bits lying around
Still waiting to hear the Adam Freeland, Manhattan Clique and Axwell mixes of Integral.

I'd be up for that, especially since it seems like a thing only hardcore fans would appreciate. It got pretty mixed reviews, if I recall.
As an alternative, I'd love to hear some of the tour mixes they've probably made so far, as a teaser for what will happen eventually.
Or a sixth single from "Hotspot", something surprising and lowkey.

I am not in the mood for something middle of the road and introspective after this shit year.
Although I'd love Fundy II, and to hear Neils thoughts on, er - "everything".... I kinda agree, everyone is over-exposed to endless bad news

I'd love a Stock Aitken Waterman styled Very part 2. Just bouncy tracks and some vintage cruising ala To Speak is a Sin

I guess Super could of been that, but it's focus felt all over the place, and Price's mixes felt a bit harsh to my ears sometimes

We have had the discussion before but I don’t think it is fair to assume that there will be CD or similar bundled with every edition.
Woof.

It’ll be a very boring lockdown stories issue. :down:

A small boast compared to my daughter being in their Pet Texts, but cuteness wins every time! 🥰
That is pretty cool to be fair. I’ve sent a couple of questions in - fingers crossed!
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|

How many Neil's photos of nature do you think we'll get? I mean, I know I sound cynical, but it's in line with "Hotspot"s artwork after all.

I would be disappointed if it was Musik as it has already been released as a download. Of course if they included the Neil version of 'For Every Moment' that would be great.

I would love to hear more "tour" versions of their songs.

Given the recent buzz over West End Girls, it could be a CD of remixes.

He's probably saving them for his next book, One Hundred Photos of Trees and a Hedgehog.

Say what you like, but there’s only one thing more reassuring and comforting in a time of global pandemic, pestilence, and plague (we won’t mention Armageddon) than a new Pet Shop Boys Literally (I’m too old to get used to calling it Annually). And that is the fans moaning about what’s going to be in it. I salute you all.

By the way, I agree it’s certain to be about Neil’s advanced adventures in agriculture, but surely we will get the first tidbits and scraps of information about new songs and plans. Is it totally beyond the realms for an EP to emerge with this? Nobody predicted Agenda. Given the likelihood of some intense creativity over the last 9 months, I wouldn’t underestimate the desire of the actor to perform to the audience.

Oh I'm sure some new music will be released with the new Literally (I miss calling it that). PLUS...from a pure revenue standpoint, selling new music products with Literally will literally help pay for itself.

Ordering IDs for the Annually books are still LIT<nr>, and on the back it still says Literally, so you're not wrong

14th of December, the cut off has passed for sending in questions.

I'm looking forward to reading the letters and answers.
Some good questions on the Facebook post. https://www.facebook.com/petshopboys/po ... 5662536285

and there just has to be a preorder bonus or accompaning bonus item such as a CD with material unavailable elsewhere. It's the rare opportunity to release something low-key to dedicated fans only.
