Pet Shop Boys will release a new single, "Winner," Tuesday, July 3, via iTunes.
The song is from their upcoming new album, Elysium, which will be released September 18 via Astralwerks.
Pet Shop Boys -- aka Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe -- recorded the album in Los Angeles, which marks the first time they've recorded in the U.S. The album was co-produced by Pet Shop Boys and Andrew Dawson, who has won three Grammys for his work with Kanye West.
The album features 12 tracks, some of which feature the voices of Oren, Maxine and Julie Waters, who have sung on projects with the Jackson Five and Adele.
“It was inspiring to make an album in Los Angeles, and to work with a producer from a different musical genre, who has brought a new dimension to our music," Pet Shop Boys announced in a press release for the new album.
The album will be available as a CD, digital download and limited-edition double CD, the other disc being an instrumental mix of the record.
