New album “Hotspot”

Pet Shop Boys today announce details of their highly anticipated new studio album, “Hotspot”, which will be released on January 24th 2020 on x2 Records/Kobalt.

“Hotspot” was mostly recorded in Hansa Studios, Berlin, and mixed in The Record Plant, Los Angeles. It was produced and mixed by Stuart Price and features ten brand new Tennant/Lowe tracks including the single “Dreamland” featuring Years & Years, which was released in September. Another of the songs, “Burning the heather”, features Bernard Butler on guitar and was recorded at RAK Studios in London. A radio edit of “Burning the heather” is available to buy/stream now from the link below.

The album is the last instalment of the trilogy of PSB albums produced by Stuart Price, following “Electric” in 2013 and “Super” in 2016. It will be released on CD, vinyl and digitally and is available to pre-order now from the link below.
