On August 6th, the new Pet Shop Boys single, "Winner" will be released digitally and on CD.
The track-listing for the first digital bundle and the CD is as follows:
2. A certain "Je ne sais quoi"
3. The way through the woods (long version)
4. I started a joke
'A certain "Je ne sais quoi"' was originally written and recorded in 2007 and recently reworked by Chris and Neil. 'The way through the woods' was recorded in Los Angeles during the 'Elysium' sessions but Neil and Chris did more work on it subsequently, creating a much longer version. It is a setting of a poem by Rudyard Kipling and, like 'Winner', features an orchestral arrangement by Joachim Horsley, Andrew Dawson and Ben Leathers. 'I started a joke' is a cover of a Bee Gees song from the 60s and is intended as a tribute to the late Robin Gibb. All three bonus tracks have been mixed by Bob Kraushaar.
A second digital bundle will contain remixes of 'Winner', including mixes by John Dahlback and Niki And The Dove.
The Electric tour returns to Spain.
The Electric tour will continue in 2015.
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.)
