Pet Shop Boys - 2012

Only six months after releasing Elysium, legendary electronic outfit Pet Shop Boys have announced plans to put out yet another album, Electric, this June via Kobalt Label Services. The LP will be produced by Grammy-winning musician and producer Stuart Price (Madonna, New Order, Kylie Minogue), and, judging by the short promo video down below, has more of a polished, dance-floor-anthem feel.

Electric not only marks the British duo’s 11th record to date, but the first not to be issued by (long!) longtime label Parlophone Records.

The band posted a statement on their website regarding the label change:

“We are hugely proud of the new album and are very pleased to be working in conjunction with Kobalt. We’d like to thank everyone we’ve worked with at Parlophone over the last 28 years both in the UK and abroad. When we signed to the label in 1985 we had no idea how long and successful a relationship we were embarking on. However it is also exciting now to commence a new phase working with a new team in a new business structure and we look forward to a creative and equally fulfilling relationship with Kobalt.”
