Pet Shop Boys Recording New Album In L.A.

I guess I missed this popping up over the holidays, but here's the cover of Pet Shop Boys' upcoming two-disc B-sides collection Format (full track list), which spans from 1996 to 2009. It's out in the UK on February 6.

Meanwhile, Neil Tennant posted the following on the duo's official site over the weekend:
Hi. We've started recording our new album in Los Angeles this week with a young producer/engineer called Andrew Dawson.
 More info on Dawson, who has primarily worked with hip hop acts like Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Drake, here.  The Boys announced in November that their 11th studio album is "due for release in early autumn next year."

    For those wondering whether PSB has been in hibernation since the early 90s, they put out their best album ever in 2009, "Yes." At least in my opinion. They don't get played on the radio anymore, but if you liked PSB in the 80s or 90s, Yes is worth checking out.

    Whoa. This is news indeed. Thanks, DL! Wow. A track listing and the producer of their next album? Damn.
