Record Store Day today

Pet Shop Boys release a limited edition seven-inch vinyl single for Record Store Day today, Saturday, April 17th. Side A features "Love life", Pet Shop Boys' hitherto unreleased 2001 recording of a song which became a hit for the Swedish group Alcazar. Side B has "A powerful friend", recorded in 2002 and never released before, which features Release tour guitarists Bic Hayes and Mark Refoy. (A proof of the single artwork is reproduced here.) The record is one of a series of limited seven-inch vinyl records Parlophone is releasing to support this year’s UK Record Store Day, including a new single by Blur and Tinie Tempah’s number one single "Pass Out".
