Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe recorded their 11th album early this year in Los Angeles, with Grammy winner Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, Jay-Z) in the producer’s chair. “It was inspiring to make an album in Los Angeles, and to work with a producer from a different musical genre, who has brought a new dimension to our music,” the pair said via a press release.
Listen to “Winner” by watching the lyric video above.
In April, Dawson talked to us about working with the veteran pop duo in L.A.: “They have so much experience doing records. I’ve definitely learned a few tricks from them on making records, too… It’s a really good working environment where everybody’s been pretty much on fire with their ideas. The stuff that everybody’s come up with has been really, really good.”
Pet Shop Boys’ Elysium album will be released in the US on September 18, while “Winner” hits iTunes tomorrow. Then, on August 7, the single will get a full-fledged release as two digital bundles (including bonus tracks and remixes).
