Pet Shop Boys writing songs for 11th album, to be recorded this fall and out in 2012

Having wrapped their global Pandemonium Tour with a final show last December, the Pet Shop Boys now are at work writing material for their upcoming 11th album, which they hope to begin recording next month and then release sometime next year, singer Neil Tennant says in a recent post to the band’s official website.

Tennant writes:

“We’ve been in the studio for the last few weeks continuing to write songs for our next album. So far this year we’ve written 16 new songs. I think we’ll start recording the album in November for release next year. Neil x”

The album would be the Pet Shop Boys’ first since 2009’s Yes, which spawned four singles (“Love, Etc.,” “Did You See Me Coming?,” “Beautiful People” and “All Over the World”) and took the band around the globe on tour. Since then, the duo has released a best-of called Ultimate in their native U.K. and their score to the ballet The Most Incredible Thing.

    I certainly care. It’s good news, but nothing much to comment on until they are released. Yes was a phenomenal album, let’s hope for more of that momentum.

    Their last album YES was very good, not 1 bad song on that album.
