Pet Shop Boys Announce New Album 'Elysium': VIDEO


Always good news when the Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe birth a new album:

In September Pet Shop Boys will release a new album, entitled "Elysium", on Parlophone. The album was produced in Los Angeles by Andrew Dawson and Pet Shop Boys. To give an idea of the album’s sound, a short film for the album track “Invisible” can be viewed online. The film was made by renowned Los Angeles artist/film-maker Brian Bress. Like several tracks on “Elysium”, “Invisible” features backing vocals by singer/songwriter James Fauntleroy and veteran singers Oren, Maxine and Julie Waters whose long singing career spans sessions with The Jackson Five to Adele.   

As always, they take things in a new direction but it's classic PSB at the same time.

Watch the short film for "Invisible", AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Same old PSB sound! Love these guys. Not crazy about the video though.

  2. Anyone remember 'Break for Love' the Friburn and Urik Tribal Mix. P-town went nuts when DJ was spinning that track. That was probably 8 or 9 years ago.

  3. I agree with Michael… I like the song, but the video looks like it was made with early 80s special effects.

  4. Always happy to hear from The Boys. Song is really lovely...if in need of an edit to my attention span.

    Strange choice for a "teaser", n'est pas?

    And the video..? Good Lord! A cute kitten slide show would have been more "engaging".

    I eagerly await the new *music*.

  5. Wonderful song. Being an older guy, I immediately connected with the lyrics. Looking forward to the album release...

  6. It is too laid back. It is not a good concert song like "Go West" or "West End Girls". People want energy. Energy sells tickets. I want Neil to use the range of his voice to keep me guessing. Why was "Yes" such a flop? One bad album could lead to another. Two bad albums in a row leads to retirement in the music industry. I hope the rest of it is better than this trailer. Glastonbury anyone?

  7. PSB's never do anything mellow or ironic. Never enjoy art/style over Twilightish cheese in their videos. Never make good music because that's what they do. /end sarcasm
