| 17 July 2013 | Reply


July 16, 2013 – Electric, the new studio album from Pet Shop Boys, is out today on their own label x2 (via Kobalt Label Services). The album was produced by Stuart Price and is now available in stores and at all digital retailers. Electric features nine tracks in total – eight brand new Pet Shop Boys’ songs plus a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘The Last To Die’.  The result is as uncompromising a collection of dance anthems as Pet Shop Boys have ever made.

The duo recently sat down to reveal the story behind the songs on Electric, which is currently available to watch in full via Billboard. To watch, click HERE or see below.

Pet Shop Boys said: “Electric is very much set on the dance floor.  Our latest album often evolves as a response to our previous album and, whereas Elysium had a reflective mood, Electric is pretty banging! And working with Stuart Price on a studio album is something we have wanted to do for a very long time”.

Stuart Price said: “Making Electric was an exciting experience. We recorded it between Berlin, London and Los Angeles using various techniques between old school synth and drum machine programming and new school computer mangling. For me it was a chance to work with two people who shaped so much of my musical taste, yet who keep on pushing farther in both a natural and unexpected fashion. ‘Disco’ (from 1986) was an album that always spoke to me because it blended song arrangements with dance floor mixes, and that is what Electric felt like to make. Allowing songs to be full length without considering the pop rules, disregarding classic structures and instead just working instinctively on what was fun and danceable.”

The track listing for Electric is:

  1. Axis
  2. Bolshy
  3. Love is a bourgeois construct
  4. Fluorescent
  5. Inside a dream
  6. The last to die
  7. Shouting in the evening
  8. Thursday (featuring Example)
  9. Vocal
