Pet Shop Boys Say Yes To New Release

(PR) Pet Shop Boys return with their tenth album and first for Astralwerks on April 21, 2009. Filled with sparkling state of the art pop songs, Yes is an affirmation of the duo's knack for mixing innovative artistry with exuberant commercial appeal.

Produced by the acclaimed Xenomania (Girls Aloud, Sugababes, Cher, Kylie Minogue, Saint Etienne), the album features guitar work by ex-Smith Johnny Marr and orchestral arrangements by Owen Pallett (Last Shadow Puppets, Final Fantasy).

"We can't seem to remember how we came up with the title Yes," says Neil. "Our official story is that we may have taken it from the famous Yoko Ono exhibition in 1967 where you had to climb up a step ladder as John Lennon famously did - pick up a magnifying glass, look at a tiny word written on the ceiling, and the word was 'yes'. I think it partly came from that." (Chris adds: "We thought No was a bit negative.")

Tracklisting:
Love etc*
All over the world
Beautiful people
Did you see me coming?
Vulnerable
More than a dream*
Building a wall
King of Rome
Pandemonium
The way it used to be*
Legacy

* written by Tennant/Lowe/Xenomania

The release of Yes will be preceded by the single "Love etc". Pet Shop Boys describe the song as "a post-lifestyle anthem which sounds like nothing we've done before."

There will also be a limited edition version of the album featuring a bonus disc with 'This used to be the future' an exclusive track featuring Phil Oakey (Human League) and 6 dub mixes produced by Xenomania ('More than a dream', Pandemonium', 'The way it used to be', 'All over the world', 'Vulnerable', 'Love etc.').
