Pet Shop Boys will release their new single Leaving digitally on October 14 and physically on October 15, on Parlophone Records.

The new single is taken from their brand new album Elysium which will be released on September 10.

Leaving will be available on CD, 12″ vinyl and download bundles with extra tracks and remixes. There are two different covers – one featuring Neil Tennant, the other Chris Lowe.

On September 5th Pet Shop Boys will be performing songs from their critically acclaimed new album Elysium at the Hebbel am Ufer (Hau 1), Berlin for a selection of special invited guests and competition winners.

This one-off show is being presented in association with Electronic Beats magazine with staging by Pet Shop Boys and lighting/stage designer Rob Sinclair.

There will also be contributions from vocalists Oren, Maxine and Julie Waters and the vocal group Sonos.

Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe recorded Elysium earlier this year in Los Angeles, the first time they have recorded an album in America. They co-produced the record with US producer Andrew Dawson, who has won three Grammys for his work on Kanye West’s albums.

The album will be available in standard CD, digital download, 12” vinyl and limited edition double CD where the bonus disc contains an instrumental mix of the album. The album has also received special mastering for the iTunes version.
