Jean-Michel Jarre & Pet Shop Boys - Brick England/Electronica 2

Pet Shop Boys have recorded a song for Jean-Michel Jarre's Electronica project. This project has JMJ recording songs with other artists who have done something in the electronic-music landscape. The first album was released october last year, featured songs by Moby, Vince Clarke, Laurie Anderson, Pete Townshend, Tangerine Dream, Air, Boys Noize and others. The new album, to be released in may has tracks recorded with Hans Zimmer, Julia Holter, Cindy Lauper, Gary Numan, The Orb, Yello and Pet Shop Boys amongst others.

Very surprising, by the way, I've been following rumors about this album for months now and Pet Shop Boys have never been named as potential collaborator.

Anyway, I must say I'm very happy about this. Pet Shop Boys and Jean-Michel Jarre are my top 2 artists and I'm very curious to hear how this collaboration will work out.

Love the albums Equinoxe and Magnetic Fields. Great that PSB got the opportunity to work with him on the second Electronica album. I have not listened to his more recent output, but this i look forward to hear!

Fab news, it seems a lifetime ago I went to the Docklands shows.

Only downside is having to buy a CD with Cindy Lauper on it.

There is that. I remember once being in a crowded HMV with my boyfriend at the time, and he was buying a compilation CD, and I embarrassed the hell out of him by saying, very loudly, 'OH MY GOD! You're buying a CD with Celine Dion on it????'

Thankfully, I'll be ordering Electronica online so only the postman will know that Cindy Lauper is going into my collection.
