Pet Shop Boys' new single "Monkey business" is out now. "We've actually written, almost for the first time in our career, a groove song," Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe say of the song. The single will be released on CD, digital and 12-inch vinyl on February 7. This is the third song to be released from their upcoming album, Hotspot, out January 24 via x2/Kobalt.
Hotspot will also be available to purchase on cassette and 2-disc deluxe CD, which includes an instrumental version of the full record on the second disc.
"We've written much of our music over the last ten years in Berlin and it was an exciting experience to work on this album in the legendary Hansa studios there and add a new dimension to our sound," Tennant and Lowe explain of the album.
Hotspot was primarily written and recorded in Berlin and Los Angeles. The album was produced and mixed by Stuart
Price (marking the third PSB album Price has produced, following Super (2016) and Electric (2013). '
