It includes an exclusive one-minute song by Pet Shop Boys entitled "Transfer".

Due to unprecedented demand, stock of the complimentary limited edition print of the "Hotspot" artwork, hand-signed by PSB, is running very low. Customers still wishing to receive the print when purchasing any format of "Hotspot" are advised to do so immediately before they sell out.
Pet Shop Boys have today announced that their forthcoming album, ‘Hotspot’, will be available to purchase in two additional formats: on cassette and a 2-disc deluxe CD version.
