PSB & Tracey

#1 Post by ype » Fri 14 Dec 2018, 3:16 pm

Tracey Thorn writes on Twitter:

Just had dinner with the Pet Shop Boys and in case you’re wondering, they’re lovely 😍

This could be good news in the making!

At last! We know Tracey’s a fan and would like to work with the boys. I’m going to stick my neck out here…I for one would love an album where every track is a PSB/Thorn collaboration.

Hello...

The track 'Dancefloor' from her album 'Record' is PRIME for a PSB remix!
...shot in the fatal cause of frock-and-droll

Her cover of King's Cross (Hot Chip mix) is divine.

This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Her new album and her ‘into the woods’ album are fabulous.
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

A collaboration?, maybe.

It's the kind of singer could get into a PSB song. A female with a very pecular and distinctive voice, part of a pop duo of dance and electronic music from the 90's, she even looks like a bit lilke a boy. I think it fits perfectly in a PSB song.

Tracey's alright but I'd prefer them to collaborate with someone more interesting and contemporary...

I always think that's a bit band-wagon jumping and desperate. Older established acts such as the Boys getting involved with Years & Years is like Madonna hitching her wagon to the latest twentysomething rapper or r'n'b artist- desperate. A Tracey Thorn and PSB collab sounds like a meeting of minds rather than bank balances.

Would love to see PSB collaborate with her. She has a great voice. Love her cover of King's Cross and her new album is fantastic.

Tracey wrote some nice things about 'The Pop Kids' for last week's New Statesman.

Some of the best music from the last 10 years has come out of Tracey Thorn. A collaboration would be a big winner! :)
