December 2012

On December 31, a new Pet Shop Boys single, “Memory of the future”, is released in a version substantially remixed (the song has been both restructured and sped up) by Stuart Price and the Pet Shop Boys. “It’s a straightforward love song,” Neil explains. “You don’t get many from us,” Chris notes.

On December 5 the Pet Shop Boys play a one-off concert at the BBC Media City in Salford, performing an eclectic selection of current and old songs accompanied by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. The concert, broadcast the following day on BBC Radio 2, features the premiere of one piece, “He dreamed of machines”, from their work-in-progress about the late British scientist, mathematician and code-breaker Alan Turing, A man from the future.
