Pet Shop Boys – Super to be Album of the Week on BBC Radio 2
Pet Shop Boys new album Super (out this Friday 1st April) will be BBC Radio 2’s Album of the Week from the 2nd of April. Released on the bands own x2 Records label, Super is the follow up to 2013’s Electric which reached number 3 in the album chart and was their highest charting album since 1995’s Alternative.
The album was written in London and Berlin and produced and mixed by Stuart Price in Los Angeles. It features 12 new Tennant/Lowe compositions including the lead single, ‘The Pop Kids’.
Last week the Pet Shop Boys announced a special pop-up store in London to mark the release of Super and it’s now been revealed that the Super Store will be located in Boxpark Shoreditch, Unit 26, Braithwaite Street, E1 6GY.
The Super Store will sell a range of new Pet Shop Boys merchandise, including tee-shirts in five different designs, iPhone cases, a signed screen print (edition of 100), badges, and signed Super CDs and vinyl (while stocks last). There will also be listening stations with B&O Play headphones so visitors can listen to the album. The shop will open from Friday April 1st to April 3rd, trading 11am to 7pm (Friday and Saturday) and 12pm to 6pm on Sunday.
