Pet Shop Boys to release 10th studio album
One of the most iconic and influential pop acts in the world, Pet Shop Boys return with their tenth album and first for Astralwerks on March 23, 2009. In a career spanning over two decades, the duo of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe have created some of the most beloved and recognizable hits in the world ('West End Girls', 'It's A Sin', 'New York City Boy', etc.), and sold over 30 million records. They've worked with artists like Dusty Springfield, David Bowie, Liza Minnelli, Robbie Williams, Electronic, The Killers and Madonna. In the USA, Pet Shop Boys are the fourth most successful artist in the history of the Billboard dance charts (behind Madonna, Donna Summer and Janet Jackson).
Filled with sparkling state of the art pop songs, Yes is an affirmation of the duo's knack for mixing innovative artistry with exuberant commercial appeal. Produced by the acclaimed Xenomania (Girls Aloud, Sugababes, Cher, Kylie Minogue, Sain Etienne), the album features guitar work by ex-Smith Johnny Marr and orchestral arrangements by Owen Pallett (Last Shadow Puppets, Final Fantasy).
Never far from the public eye, Pet Shop Boys have been very busy lately: producing a #1 UK dance hit for Sam Taylor-Wood (released on the ultra-hip Kompakt label), remixing a track for Lady Gaga and co-writing the hit UK single 'The Loving Kind' for Girls Aloud. They are also working on a ballet, and were honored with the Outstanding Contribution to Music award at the Brit Awards this month.
