Neil Tennant will be the special guest on Elton John’s 50th episode of his Beats 1 show The Rocket Hour. It airs today June 27th at 7pm LA Time and reairs Tue 6/28 at 6am PT. They chat and play each other music, new and old, and talk about The Pet Shop Boys over the years, gay clubs in Paris, touring, Dusty Springfield and singing at football games. Let me know if you need embeds to post any part of the conversation.
On Friday, Pet Shop Boys new single “Twenty-something” single and digital remix bundle became available. To celebrate, Noisey premieres the new video for the reggaeton inflected Los Evo Jedis remix. View video HERE. Noisey describes “Dealing with the very Pet Shop Boys-esque concerns of battling against the cyclical inevitability of inner-city life, it pulls of the rare trick of packing a message and looking as good as it sounds.”
Additional new bonus tracks include “The white dress,” “Wiedersehen” featuring backing vocals from Rufus Wainwright and a remix by Swedish DJ/producer Kornél Kovács .
The duo have announced the first leg of the “Super” world tour starting on October 21 in Las Vegas.
