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

2000

Chris continues working on the music for 'Nine Out of Ten.'

2002

The Boys' appearance on the U.K. TV show Later… with Jools Holland, taped two days earlier, airs on this date.

2005

They record new vocals for 'The Resurrectionist' and rework 'Indefinite Leave to Remain,' slowing the rhythm track down somewhat.

2011

'Together' is released as a digital single in the U.S.—roughly five months after it was released in the U.K. and various other countries. On this same day, Chris composes music and Neil writes lyrics for a new song, 'Everything Means Something.'

2014

The Pet Shop Boys make the first of their two scheduled appearances at this year's Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California. (To get there they first had to drive through a desert sandstorm.) Billboard gives PSB a glowing review, stating, 'The duo may have fulfilled the role of elder statesmen for the day (no band on Saturday's lineup has been around longer than the '80s innovators), but PSB's recent material packed an energetic punch that could have stood next to any of the younger acts on the bill.'

I've watched you from a distance
I've passed you on the street
I'm obsessed with you
I don't know what to do
To make you pay attention
and fall in love with me
I'm obsessed with you
I don't know what to do

Guess there's no place to hide
when you're screaming inside
