I'm in love with a German film star

Pet Shop Boys have recorded a cover of the early 80s classic, "I'm in love with a German film star", with Sam Taylor-Wood on vocals. The new version, partly inspired by Marlene Dietrich, will be made available for sale on CD from this site as the second release on the Lucky Kunst label. There will be a seven-inch mix, a "full length" mix and a dance remix. Full details will be here as soon as we have them. "I'm in love with a German film star" was originally a hit in the UK in 1981 for The Passions. The first release on Lucky Kunst was "Love to love you, baby" by Kiki Kokova.
