Pet Shop Boys' new single, "Together", will be released by Parlophone on November 29th on two CDs and digital download. As well as "Together" the track-listings will include:
* "Glad all over" - a version of the early 60s hit by The Dave Clark Five which Pet Shop Boys performed in Chris's home town of Blackpool this summer. The song has become a victory anthem for Blackpool FC which rose to the Premier League this year. This new studio version was arranged and produced by Pet Shop Boys and Tim Powell.
* "I cried for us" - Neil sang this song by the late Kate McGarrigle, mother of Rufus Wainwright, at her memorial concert at the Royal Festival Hall in London in June in an arrangement by Pet Shop Boys. Chris and Neil produced this studio version which was mixed by Pete Gleadall.
* "Together (extended version)" - remixed by Tim Powell.
Dance remixes of "Together" will also be made available.
Full format details will be on this site when they are finalised.
A promotional video for the song is being shot later this month in Eastern Europe.
"Together" was written and produced by Pet Shop Boys and Tim Powell at the beginning of September and will also be included as the final track of Pet Shop Boys' new greatest hits album, "Ultimate", to be released on November 1st.

In 1991 when we presented the Simon Bates Show on BBC Radio One for a week, we featured each day a special mix of current dance music. We commissioned the mixes from 808 State, Kenny Ken, Sasha, Frankie Knuckles and Carl Cox. At the time, it was amazing to hear dance music at 10.30 in the morning on Radio One and the mixes got a great reaction from the listening public. Someone has just uploaded all of the five mixes to Soundcloud (we have no idea how they got hold of them...). Check them out at the link below. Neil x (Thanks to Wayne Studer for alerting us to this.)
