Duo leave Parlophone for Kobalt label deal

Pet Shop Boys today announced that they have left Parlophone after 28 years to sign with Kobalt Music Services (recently responsible for the hugely successful Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds LP) for a new album. Produced by Stuart Price, Electric will be out in June 2013 and if the trailer above is anything to go by will be among their music fruity and banging work in ages. THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR! "This is a very exciting point in our careers," said Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe like a two-headed pop monster. "We are hugely proud of the new album and are very pleased to be working in conjunction with Kobalt. We’d like to thank everyone we’ve worked with at Parlophone over the last 28 years both in the UK and abroad. When we signed to the label in 1985 we had no idea how long and successful a relationship we were embarking on. However it is also exciting now to commence a new phase working with a new team in a new business structure and we look forward to a creative and equally fulfilling relationship with Kobalt."
