Pet Shop Boys are preparing the Parlophone release of the latest in their series of "Disco" remix albums. Whereas previous albums in the series have mainly included remixes of PSB tracks by other artists and DJs, Chris and Neil were keen to collect on one album some of their remixes of other artists and their own recent remixes of PSB tracks. Accordingly, Disco 4 will include Pet Shop Boys' extended dance mixes of The Killers, Madonna, Yoko Ono, Rammstein, Atomizer and David Bowie, as well as a new extended mix of "Integral" and their maxi-mix of "I'm with Stupid". The album will be released on CD but not on digital download sites as digital release rights were not available from the artists concerned. Provisional release date is September 24th but this may change. Disco 4 follows on from Disco (1986), Disco 2 (1994) and Disco 3 (2003). The full track-listing is as follows: 1. The Killers: Read My Mind (PSB Stars Are Blazing mix) 2. David Bowie with Pet Shop Boys: Hallo Spaceboy (PSB Extended mix) 3. Pet Shop Boys: Integral (PSB Perfect Immaculate mix) 4. Yoko Ono: Walking On Thin Ice (PSB Electro mix) 5. Madonna: Sorry (PSB Maxi-mix) 6. Atomizer: Hooked On Radiation (PSB Orange Alert mix) 7. Rammstein: Mein Teil (PSB There Are No Guitars On This mix) 8. Pet Shop Boys: I'm with Stupid (PSB Maxi-mix) Pet Shop Boys would like to thank The Killers, Madonna, David Bowie, Yoko Ono, Rammstein and Atomizer for allowing their songs to appear on this album. Reports of "Integral" being released as a single are inaccurate, although promo copies of Pet Shop Boys' "Perfect Immaculate mix" will be made available to club DJs and selected radio DJs. A politically-inspired video for the track is currently being edited and will be on You Tube and this site as soon as it is finished. The song was originally written as a protest against the proposed introduction of ID cards in the UK and the gradual erosion of personal freedom taking place in the current political climate; the video reflects this.
