Pet Shop Boys’ highly anticipated new studio album, “Hotspot”, will be released on Friday, January 24th, on x2 Records/Kobalt.
“Hotspot” was mostly recorded in Hansa Studios, Berlin, and mixed in The Record Plant, Los Angeles. It was produced and mixed by Stuart Price and features ten brand new Tennant/Lowe tracks including the singles “Dreamland” (featuring Years & Years) and "Monkey Business". Another of the songs, “Burning the heather”, recorded at RAK Studios in London, has also been released as a single and features Bernard Butler on guitar.
Pet Shop Boys say:
“We’ve written much of our music over the last ten years in Berlin and it was an exciting experience to work on this album in the legendary Hansa studios there and add a new dimension to our sound.”
The album is the last instalment of the trilogy of PSB albums produced by Stuart Price, following “Electric” in 2013 and “Super” in 2016. It will be released on CD, vinyl, limited edition cassette and digitally and is available to pre-order now from the link below.
