Pet Shop Boys to release ‘Winner’ — first single off upcoming ‘Elysium’ — next week

The Pet Shop Boys will premiere “Winner,” the first official single from their forthcoming 11th studio album Elysium, this coming Monday between 9:30 a.m. and noon on BBC Radio 2’s “The Ken Bruce Show,” then, later in the day, make it available for sale via iTunes. While “Winner” is earmarked as the album’s first single, a different track, “Invisible,” already has been previewed by the duo.

A month after its initial digital release, the “Winner” single will be released on CD, with three bonus tracks, and as two “digital bundles” with bonus cuts and remixes on Aug. 6. The album itself, produced in Los Angeles by Andrew Dawson (who has worked with Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Beyonce) and the Pet Shop Boys, is set for release Sept. 18.

UPDATE 7/2/12: “Winner was released today and can be streamed here.

  3. Me want!

  4. Here is a clue from the official website about touring…

    We are pleased to announce that Pet Shop Boys will be headlining the Afisha Picnic Festival 2012 in Moscow, Russia, on July 21st. This will be the full Pandemonium tour production for (probably) the last time as a new Pet Shop Boys tour is planned for early next year with a completely new production.

  5. Thanks, Sean!
