Check Out: Pet Shop Boys cover “Viva La Vida”

on November 17, 2009, 1:45pm

Not to be outdone by Rivers Cuomo and Co., the Pet Shop Boys recently announced plans to cover Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” as part of a new five-track Christmas EP. Thanks to Idolator, we now know that said cover consists of quite a bit of synth, the usage of a drum machine, and enough glitz to rival a house full of tinsel.

The aptly titled Christmas EP will also include a new version of “All Over The World”, a reworked version of “It Doesn’t Often Snow At Christmas”, and a cover of Madness’ “My Girl”. It will be available beginning December 14th via Parlophone.
