New publishing deal

Pet Shop Boys have signed a worldwide music publishing deal with BMG Chrysalis UK ahead of the release of their twelfth studio album, Electric, on July 15, 2013. Alexi Cory-Smith, SVP of BMG Chrysalis UK, said, “Pet Shop Boys are pre-eminent songwriters and we are honored that that they have chosen BMG Chrysalis to represent their music.” BMG Chrysalis A&R Director Hugo Turquet, who signed them alongside VP of A&R Ben Bodie, said, “It is a very rare band to still be so relevant at this stage in their career. Electric really is a classic Pet Shop Boys dance-floor album.” Pet Shop Boys manager Angela Becker added: “Choosing BMG was an easy decision. Ben and Hugo's passion and feel for Pet Shop Boys’ history alongside the company’s clear vision for their future make this an exciting partnership”.
