It seems there’s no stopping iconic pop duo Pet Shop Boys (Neil Tennant, 64 and Chris Lowe, 58) as this week it was announced they’re writing yet another album.

This will be the 14th studio album and comes only two years after the release of Super which hit the number three spot in the U.K. charts in 2016.

News from camp PSB is that 21 songs have already been written and will be produced by Stuart Price who has worked extensively with the boys and has produced the previous two albums Super and Electric (2013).

This next album will deliver on the promised trilogy of collaborations between Tennant, Lowe and Price. Neil and Chris are currently taking a break after their world tour which took them through Europe, North and South America as well as two, four night residences at London’s Royal Opera House.

Fans of the group are eagerly awaiting this new album with many already speculating that this will be another stomper.

Whatever the new album brings it seems musically, they’re at the top of their game and show no signs of slowing. This year marks 37 years since the pair met in an electronics shop on the Kings Road, London and since then they’ve chalked up 44 U.K. top 40 hits and 4 number one singles.

Over the years, they have gone from strength to strength with their own unique and easily recognisable sound coupled with Tennant’s forthright and often cheeky lyrics. Through the years they both have rarely strayed from that pure electronic sound and with the advancement in technology their music is sharper than ever.

With the promise of a new album fans can almost hear the sound of a tour coming to a venue near them but for now the anticipation of a new album which will be sure to delight fans old and new.

A release date for the album is yet to be confirmed.
