Veteran synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys will release their 11th studio album, Elysium, on September 11th on Astralwerks. The album will be the band’s first since 2009’s Yes. Co-produced by American Andrew Dawson, it also marks the first album that Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe have recorded in the United States.
“Winner,” the album’s melodramatic first single, was released on July 3rd with an accompanying video. Niki + the Dove’s remix replaces the track’s elegant orchestral sheen with six minutes of thumping club beats, gurgling synths and relentless vocal loops. Weaving a quick Tennant vocal sample into a tight house groove, the track updates the Eighties vets for the Daft Punk set.
The remix will appear on a four-track digital bundle release of “Winner,” which is set for August 7th. The bundle will also include bonus tracks and other remixes.
