1 March 2021

Pet Shop Boys Annually 2021 will be published on May 7th and is available to pre-order now at the link below.

This year’s 64-page, hard-backed book will include:

- A bumper feature entitled “A year”; a definitive chronicle of 1986, the year Pet Shop Boys achieved global success, based on Neil’s diary with comments from PSB and archive images.

- News from this past year and how PSB have been spending their time in lockdowns.

- Plus photographs, your letters answered, and more.

Annually is packaged with a brand-new, two-track single, “Cricket wife”. This dramatic new song – almost 10 minutes long – is accompanied by the lockdown version of “West End girls” which debuted online in June 2020. Both tracks were recorded during lockdown, with Chris and Neil recording their parts in their respective homes.

On This Day


The Boys, in London, take part in shooting the video for 'Where the Streets Have No Name (I Can't Take My Eyes Off You).'


'She's Madonna' is released as a single, credited to 'Robbie Williams with Pet Shop Boys.'


An exhibition by German photographer/artist Wolfgang Tillmans (who had previously created the 'Home and Dry' music video for the Boys) has been at the Tate Modern gallery in London since mid-February. Today, as a special one-day event, it features a 'sound installation' described as 'a reconstruction of 'It’s a Sin' by the Pet Shop Boys,' which gradually builds, over the course of more than 2½ hours, from a single drum track through 30 layers that make up the entire recording. This 'reconstruction' occurs twice today.

Never been closer to heaven
Never been further away
Never been closer to heaven
Never been further away

Give me hope
Give me all your love
Tell me now
You're coming home tonight
Have some faith
In the love we share
Is it fate?
Does darkness end in light?

Never been closer to heaven

You only tell me you love me when you’re drunk
