Pet Shop Boys

Pet Shop Boys will release their thirteenth album, Super, on April 1. Like 2013's Electric, the new album was produced by Stuart Price. The first single is "The Pop Kids," a nostalgic ode to the early '90s, telling the tale of a music-obsessed couple that's set to a balearic house backing. "We quoted the best bits" is a typically arch Neil Tennant lyrical hook. You can watch the lyric video below.

The only live dates Pet Shop Boys have coming up is four nights at London's Royal Opera House in July. Dates are listed, along with Super's cover art/tracklist and the "Pop Kids" lyric video, below...
