A 'slew' of new information has appeared regarding the forthcoming, Stuart Price-produced Pet Shop Boys album 'Electric'.
The artwork is the blue thing you will see to your right.
Example appears on a song called 'Thursday', Bruce Springsteen cover 'The Last To Die' (as performed live on recent dates) is track six, the amazing italotronic teaser track from last month is really called 'Axis' and opens the album, there's a Boys Noize mix of 'Axis' on its way, the whole thing's out on July 15, and you can pre-order it on iTunes right now.
Neil and Chris told a press release that "'Electric' is very much set on the dance floor," adding: "Our latest album often evolves as a response to our previous album and, whereas 'Elysium' had a reflective mood, 'Electric' is pretty banging! [TRANSLATION: GET ON YOUR DANCING SHOES] And working with Stuart Price on a studio album is something we have wanted to do for a very long time."
In further copy and paste action, Stuart Price adds: "Making 'Electric' was an exciting experience. We recorded it between Berlin, London and Los Angeles using various techniques between old school synth and drum machine programming and new school computer mangling. For me it was a chance to work with two people who shaped so much of my musical taste, yet who keep on pushing farther in both a natural and unexpected fashion. 'Disco' (from 1986) was an album that always spoke to me because it blended song arrangements with dance floor mixes, and that is what 'Electric' felt like to make. Allowing songs to be full length without considering the pop rules, disregarding classic structures and instead just working instinctively on what was fun and danceable."
The full tracklisting, meanwhile, is:
3. Love Is A Bourgeois Concept
5. Inside A Dream
6. The Last To Die
7. Shout In The Evening
The page that all this info has come from claims that a video for 'Axis' should be here although at the time of writing that's just a private video. Perhaps it will have magically sprung to life by the time you read this.
Finally, there is a new photo, which we have enlarged for you so that it fits the usual width we use for images on Popjustice. If you're unhappy about the quality, simple take a few steps back from your computer or 'mobile device'.
THE BOY CAP IS BACK.
