Pet Shop Boys Reveal 'Electric' Tracklist, Release Date & "Axis" Video
The first taste of the Stuart Price-produced Electric is opening track "Axis," which contains no real singing by Neil Tennant, but plenty of spoken phrases and Italo disco mixed with Giorgio Moroder-esque flourishes.
And here's a video!
No word yet on whether "Axis" is an official single, but my guess would be that it's simply a teaser, much in the way "Invisible" was for Elysium last year.
Pet Shop Boys' official site also notes that Electric has a run time of about 50 minutes, and contains nine tracks altogether — eight originals and a cover of Bruce Springsteen's 2007 song "Last To Die." And get ready to arch an eyebrow, because rapper Example features on a song called "Thursday."
3. Love is a bourgeois construct
5. Inside a dream
6. The last to die
7. Shouting in the evening
8. Thursday (featuring Example)
"Axis" is available on iTunes now, while Electric is up for pre-order.
