Since surprising fans with the announcement earlier this month that they’ve got a new album set for release in June, the Pet Shop Boys haven’t said much about the forthcoming Stuart Price-produced Electric. On Friday night, at the first concert on the band’s Electric tour, however, the duo debuted two of the new tracks — including a Bruce Springsteen cover.

Performing at the Cumbre Tajin festival in Mexico, the band, which just released its 11th album Elysium six months ago, previewed the Electric tour — which gets going in May — with a set that featured two songs off the forthcoming album: “Axis” and Springsteen’s “The Last to Die,” off his 2008 album Magic, the latter of which you can see posted above (and check out the original below).
