Re: Australian News Roundup

Greetings Piotrek,

Thanks for the heads up. I didn't realise Amazon.au had switched to being a real outlet, and not just a retailer of digital content, as they were when they launched... so I will be sure to keep an eye on it moving forward.

Retro. :)

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Thanks for the comprehensive review. My only question is, given the last song seems like such a comedown, (if they could go back in time) would there have been an opportunity to slip An Open Mind somewhere in amongst the other 9 songs to make a better and/or more cohesive album. I ask in part becaus...

Re: Burning the heather

Greetings, Yes I posted the link earlier in this thread. I visit the site compulsively every day. I think it's too early to panic that PSB are ditching the CD single. They probably see BtH as a light release. A light release it might be, but the inclusion of a proper b-side track makes it a valid si...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Greetings, My source says of the new album, "It's not exciting me. But it's not horrid either". Have asked for any hints on the style of each track... will see if/when he comes back with something. (For context, he's a pretty good judge, IMO, of recent PSB releases... being thrilled by Electric, fin...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Greetings Dog, I appreciate the concern. Whilst I could have gone "full Wikileaks mode", I have decided not to. It is my understanding that I came into possession of this information, out of a desire to promote, and build anticipation and excitement for the new album amongst those who might be incli...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Greetings, “Where we might be going next...” Nickname might be crassly wrong on most fronts, but maybe there is mileage in the idea of another album soonish after this one... Whether soon or not, it's nice to know that the end of the trilogy is unlikely to herald the end of Pet Shop Boys... which is...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Greetings, Looks like next Annually draft. Chris Heath laptop was stolen? :) Ha. Maybe, but I doubt it. Since the above write-up seems to be of interest to people, you may as well also have this entry for Dreamland, which I didn't share initially on account of the fact we've already heard the song p...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Greetings palpatine, I won't be giving the source, both out of respect for the source, and because I'm hoping that the same source might also be able provide a track-by-track rundown of the new album in the near future, which (pending their OK) I'll also be happy to share. If forum staff are concern...

This obviously is made-up news. The title is quite misleading. :evil: Why don't you change the title to something like "3rd single speculation"?
You are fake news.

On the contrary, I don't do fake news. This is not fake news.

Kind regards.

3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

On January xx, “Monkey business”, the third new song from the forthcoming Pet Shop Boys album, is released. Their first version of the song had been written in the Super era. The chorus existed first; the verses came later, inspired by Neil imagining what Mick Jagger might sing if this were a Rollin...
