It's fantastic to be reading this. Monkey Business sounds like it could be amazing, or possibly another Marmite...

Retro, in terms of the style of the writing, and the quoting of N&C, it certainly does feel like the text of Literally... and if so, we're getting the very thing that people buy Literally for. Can you confirm it isn't that?

I think they heard a rumour, or someone tipped them off.

One might think that this leak is not random.
As well as 4 years ago Geowayne "accidentaly" found in web pink circle with Super inside and slogan "What is Super?". And shared it here because it was very PSB-ish :D
Geowayne saw the ad and i was the first one who found it on twitter.

Don't worry... nothing was stolen, only given.

That said, I've PMed forum staff about it. If they have any concerns, they can let me know, or edit my posts as required.

Retro. :)
Stolen / leaked... Surely it’s been published here without the copyright holder’s permission though? You can bet your bottom dollar they’ll be all over trying to trace how this could have happened. I’d be surprised if someone isn’t in touch, particularly given you’ve said there could be more to come. If I sound naive or lecturing, I apologise, that’s not my intention. I’m more interested.
I have said this ad nauseum. they could avoid all of this...if they do what alot of artists are doing and what they did with "agenda".
just put it out. the worry of leaks...over...the bulk of illegal downloading... over. they gain nothing with these release dates that are set into the future which just makes people try all the harder to find what they can.

If forum staff are concerned that I might be contaminating the forum with Nickname-style fan-fiction.
Interesting.

i really believe there is a proper new single on the way, after this one. I mean, when the album is realized.

In my opinion, PSB wanted this single like a kind of Christmas present for fans (with bells on it) and for Christmas market. The mood of the song has a bit of this. But it doesn't sound like a proper PSB single. So I believe there is a more powerful single on the way for the album release.
Your new info:
- “Monkey business”, the third new song from the forthcoming Pet Shop Boys album, is released.

So, looks like my Nickname-style fiction (like you say) works.

Let's wait for the next one.

There is a new album on the way very soon, after this one.
“All three albums sound quite different,” Neil points out. “In that the first one is basically a dance album, the second one is a pop album, and this one…” Chris completes the thought: “I would say it’s a transitioning album. It has elements of the previous, but then it’s moving towards where we might be going next.

Maybe the Nickname-style fiction is more a Nickname-style reality.

I love the line "where we may be going next". Neil and Chris always looking to the future in regards to new material. new material always on the horizon even while about to put out a new album. love it.

Bloody hell, it looks like there are at least 5 songs titled "Monkey Business" by other artists already:
  • "Monkey Business" (Skid Row song), 1991
  • "Monkey Business" (Michael Jackson song), released 2004
  • "Monkey Business", a song by Nik Kershaw on the album Human Racing
  • "Monkey Business", a song by Pain on the album Cynic Paradise
  • "Monkey Business", a song by Danger Danger on the album Screw It!
I'd be therefore very surprised to learn that PSB release another one. Which makes me think that the one on Hotspot is a cover.

You can think what you like but it is an empirical fact that it isn't.

They're pretty much stating explicitly that they wrote, how the hell can it be a cover? Especially if the original version was a demo of "Pazzo".

Maybe the title is a cover version of the phrase ‘monkey business’ and they wrote a lyric and added a tune and built a song around that.
