The first single to be take from the Pet Shop Boys new album, ‘Electric’, was unveiled this morning and at the helm of production duties is super producer Stuart Price.
‘Axis’ sees the synth pop legends, alongside Mr Price, recapture the duos club roots with a modern take on their infamous swirling synth-pop sound. Basically it doesn’t get much better than this.
“Electric is very much set on the dancefloor,” said Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe.
“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.”
Price added: “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.”
