The Pet Shop Boys today debuted the first single off their forthcoming 14th studio album, a song called “Dreamland” that a pulsing dance number that features Neil Tennant duetting with Olly Alexander of the UK synthpop outfit Years & Years. Stream it below.
The single will be included on PSB’s follow-up to 2016’s Super, which is due out in January. The duo plans to announce the new album’s title and reveal its cover art “soon,” according to a Facebook post.
The Pet Shop Boys also a seven-date late-spring U.K. arena tour “to open their first-ever greatest-hits tour.” That trek will be called Dreamworld: The Greatest Hits Live, and the group has not announced where else they’ll play following those dates, which you can see below.

Looks like this will be their first single to not have a physical release. Similar to OMD’s recent ‘Don’t Go’ single…
I was enjoying it until Years & Years piped up. Their voice is really jarring in comparison, doesn’t fit at all.
