Godfathers of synth-cool awesomeness Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe—aka Pet Shop Boys–haven’t exactly been sitting on their respective duffs since releasing their Grammy-nominated LP Yes two years ago. In addition to embarking on a world tour, writing a musical score for the current London ballet production of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Most Incredible Thing and, most recently, signing up to hit the road with Take That across Europe this summer, the pair also released new single “Together” overseas last year. Tomorrow the song gets a U.S. release. Hear two of the mixes below!
You might recall the Boys’ rad dance-off video for “Together,” directed by Peeter Rebane and shot in Estonia, from last fall. The song initially appeared on the pair’s European greatest hits offering Ultimate (which, despite its title, was missing a few key singles if you ask us).
At any rate, “Together” hits U.S. iTunes tomorrow. Below is the waltz-influenced extended version and previously unreleased Pepptalk Mix.[wpaudio url="http://cdn.idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/04-Together-Extended-mix.mp3" text="Pet Shop Boys - Together (Extended Mix)" dl="0"]
