PET SHOP BOYS today announce details of their highly anticipated new studio album, ‘Hotspot’, which will be released on 24th January 2020 on x2 Records/Kobalt.

‘Hotspot’ was mostly written and recorded in Berlin and Los Angeles and produced and mixed by Stuart Price. It features 10 brand new Tennant/Lowe tracks including previous single ‘Dreamland’ featuring Years & Years, released earlier this year, and new track ‘Burning the heather’ – which features Bernard Butler on guitar.

The album is the third instalment in the series of PSB albums produced by Stuart Price, following ‘Electric’ in 2013 and ‘Super’ in 2016. It will be available on CD, vinyl and digitally and is available to pre-order now.
