New Pet Shop Boys Album!

Sydney, AU (EMI MUSIC AUSTRALIA) - Pet Shop Boys release 'Fundamental', already hailed as their best ever studio album, on Saturday May 20.

The single, 'I'm With Stupid', inspired by the relationship between Tony Blair and George Bush, is released to Australian radio/TV on Monday April 3. It will have an accompanying video which will include appearances by David Williams and Matt Lucas.

The single and album herald a period of intense activity, including the publishing of 'Pet Shop Boys Catalogue', a lavish history of Pet Shop Boys' entire visual output, edited by Philip Hoarse and Chris Heath.

'Fundamental' is the ninth studio album by the Pet Shop Boys and reunites the guys with legendary producer Trevor Horn, who first worked with them on the seminal 'Left To My Own Devices' in 1988.

It was recorded in London starting in May 2005 and features 12 tracks - 11 new Tennant/Lowe compositions and one track, 'Numb', written by Diane Warren.
Neil Tennant says: 'We think it's a great Pet Shop Boys album and also a great Trevor Horn record.'

Trevor Horn adds: 'I have always wanted to make a whole album with Pet Shop Boys. This album shows off their wonderful song-writing and is a record that I think only the three of us together could have made.'
Advance copies of the album have seen it heralded as a masterpiece in a variety of publications.

NME said; 'The electro godfathers diss ID cards and the war on terror over thunderous Trevor Horn production on their best album for over a decade'
Observer Music Monthly said: 'The forthcoming Pet Shop Boys album is on the headphones and it's a cracker'.

Q wrote: 'Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe return to the magnificently OTT disco pop of their heyday.'
The Sun said: 'Their forthcoming album 'Fundamental' is brilliant.'

Popjustice wrote that 'Fundamental' is 'the first great pop album of 2006. There are about a million reasons why… will make you laugh, it will make you cry, it will make you want to have a little dance….seriously, this is a properly good Pet Shop Boys album.'

Pet Shop Boys recently remixed Madonna's UK number one single 'Sorry' with Neil Tennant adding vocals to the track and she paid tribute to their influence onstage at the Brits this year.
