UK beatsmiths The Pet Shop Boys have released another new track, “Happiness,” from their upcoming thirteenth studio album Super.
It’s been 30 years this year since Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe’s first album Please, and they said they wanted to make an album with “a very stong electronic mood” all the way through it.
“It felt like [2013 album] Electric had been a sort of ‘rebooting’ of the Pet Shop Boys, reminding ourselves that we came into this whole thing because we liked electronic music,” they said on their website.
“Until this album and the previous album we’ve never been electronic purists – there have always been other instruments and orchestras and things like that. Whereas this album and Electric are purely electronic albums.”
Super is out on April 1.
