Pet Shop Boys are currently working on two new album productions. First, the duo will be releasing the soundtrack to "Battleship Potemkin," a 1925 silent Russian movie about a mutiny aboard a Russian battleship amidst unbearable conditions. They performed the score live at Trafalgar Square in London last September together with the Dresdner Sinfoniker. The disc will be released in the U.K. in September. No U.S. release has been set.
Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe are also working on songs for their own artist album together with producer Trever Horn. The PSB web site describes the songs as "'more electro-pop' than the first 'epic' five Horn has produced [for the album]. The Diane Warren composition, 'Numb,' originally recorded for the 'PopArt' compilation and produced by Trevor Horn, will also be featured on the new album to be released in Spring, 2006."
