Pet Shop Boys today announce details of their highly anticipated new studio album, ‘Hotspot’, which will be released on 24th January 2020 on x2 Records/Kobalt.
‘Hotspot’ was mostly written and recorded in Berlin and Los Angeles and produced and mixed by Stuart Price. It features 10 brand new Tennant/Lowe tracks including previous single ‘Dreamland’ featuring Years & Years, released earlier this year, and new track ‘Burning the heather’ – which features Bernard Butler on guitar.

to our sound.”
