The Pet Shop Boys last week released a new “lockdown version” of their early hit single “Pet Shop Boys,” with a new musical bed put together by Chris Lowe on his laptop at the home where he’s in isolation from the coronavirus, and new vocals sung by Neil Tennant. You can hear the new version here.
A round-up of the week’s new albums, expanded reissues and/or box sets, appearing each Monday on Slicing Up Eyeballs. All releases due out this Friday unless noted. This week’s titles include new and reissued music from The Breeders, Buffalo Tom, Pet Shop Boys, The Art of Noise, Annie Lennox and UB40.
The Pet Shop Boys’ score to the new ballet adaptation of ‘The Most Incredible Thing’ is out in the U.S. this week, and to mark the occasion, Astralwerks is providing us with a 7-album PSB prize back to award one lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs reader in the United States.
