Pet Shop Boys Release 3rd single from ‘Elysium’Jan 02, 2013
“Stuart Price made the new seven-inch mix of ‘Memory of the future’ for us and then extended it into this fantastic futuristic dance mix. We’ve always liked Ulrich Schnauss’s visionary albums and are thrilled that he has created a beautiful mix which sounds both like him and us.” – singer Neil Tennant on the new mixes of “Memory of the future”.
UK electro-pop legends Pet Shop Boys have just launched two new digital EPs in the US for their new single ‘Memory of the future’. The song, taken from their latest album ‘Elysium’, was released on New Year’s Day, and features brand new mixes by revered producer Stuart Price (Kylie Minogue, The Killers, Madonna). In keeping with previous single releases, there are also three brand new songs, and remixes from German ambient-techno maestro Ulrich Schnauss, as well as new interpretations from DJ Waldo Squash and Digital Dog.
In addition to the music, the band has also launched a couple of seasonal webtools to usher in the new year.
The e-card is a new year’s greeting, users can upload an image and send to family and friends. The time capsule is contest based, users are encouraged to upload images, graphic and video content for a grand prize reveal in early Spring.
