Pet Shop Boys’ brand new album ‘Elysium’ will be released on Parlophone on September 17, preceded by the single ‘Winner’ on August 6. The track is available to download from tomorrow, July 3.
Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe recorded ‘Elysium’ earlier this year in Los Angeles, the first time they have recorded an album in America. They co-produced the record with US producer Andrew Dawson, who has won three Grammys for his work on Kanye West’s albums.
The album track ‘Invisible’ was recently made available online, accompanied by a film made by renowned Los Angeles artist/film-maker Brian Bress.
‘Elysium’ features twelve new songs which display a warm, deep electronic sound, and includes orchestral arrangements by Joachim Horsley, Andrew Dawson and Ben Leathers. Backing vocals are provided on many of the tracks by veteran singers Oren, Maxine and Julie Waters (whose long career spans sessions with The Jackson Five to Adele), and singer/songwriter James Fauntleroy.
Pet Shop Boys said: “It was to inspiring to make an album in Los Angeles, and to work with a producer from a different musical genre, who has brought a new dimension to our music”.
