Pet Shop Boys Elysium on Limited Edition 2LP w/ Bonus Disc of Instrumentals
Astralwerks is proud to announce the highly-anticipated release of the new Pet Shop Boys album Elysium. Recorded in Los Angeles (the first time the duo have recorded an album in the U.S.), the record was co-produced by Andrew Dawson, who has won three Grammy awards for his work with Kanye West.
Elysium features 12 new songs which display a warm, deep electronic sound, and includes orchestral arrangements by Joachim Horsley, Andrew Dawson and Ben Leathers. Backing vocals are provided on many of the tracks by veteran singers Oren, Maxine and Julie Waters (whose long career spans sessions with The Jackson Five to Adele), and singer/songwriter James Fauntleroy.
Producer Andrew Dawson recently said, "It was exciting for me to work with Pet Shop Boys, the breadth of their career has been phenomenal. They both have incredible ideas and I've definitely learned a few tricks from them on making records." The Pet Shop Boys added, "We wanted to make this album in a different environment. Despite frequent visits there we have never made an album in Los Angeles. Working there with Andrew Dawson has enabled us to make a very fresh-sounding album."
One of the most iconic, celebrated pop groups in the world, Pet Shop Boys have created some of the most beloved hits ever ("West End Girls," "It's a Sin," "What Have I Done to Deserve This," "New York City Boy"), selling over 30 million records and playing shows all over the world. Their last album Yes spawned two #1 Billboard dance hits, "Love Etc." and "Did You See Me Coming."
In a career spanning over 2 decades, the duo of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe have worked with artists like Dusty Springfield, David Bowie, Liza Minneli, Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue, Electronic and Madonna. Limited edition deluxe 2LP version also includes a bonus disc of instrumentals.
