Just found a whole bunch of unknown song titles registered to Neil and Chris as writers on ASCAP and they're as following:

Back To The Grind
[s] Berlin Mitte Boy [/s]
Challenge/The Challenge
Destruction
Faster
For Every Moment
Help Me
Hold On My Heart
Holding Back
I've Got Plans Involving You
Imagine
It Might Be Obvious
It's Not A Crime
[s]Jai Pas Peur[/s]
K Hole
Love And War
Love Letter
New Love
Nine Out Of Ten
[s]Occupy My Mind[/s]
Physical Jerks
Prologue
[s]Risk[/s]
Room With A Viewer
[s]Something Special[/s]

It's not the definitive list, I only had energy to go through it once (there's 373 in total). Anyone recognize these from any side projects of theirs? Not that familiar with all of those, only the Pet Shop Boys canon.
Many of those already released for side projects, or B sides, or for other artists, or with different title.

I had a look at the list of 373 tracks, the ones I don't recognise are:

Faster
Hold On My Heart
Holding Back
I've Got Plans Involving You
Imagine
It's Not A Crime
Love And War
Love Letter
Room With A Viewer
Unbelievable
What Does It Feel Like
What Would I Know?

I also noticed there's a track called Occupy My Mind, performed by PSB. Maybe it's a demo of Dusty's song.

It's Not A Crime is a 1982 demo, possibly evolved into Left To My Own Devices.
Unbelievable could be Unbelievable Scenes which was an early Fugitive.
Love Letter could be Love Letters, another 1998 demo.
Love and War is from Behaviour sessions.
I've Got Plans Involving You is referenced in the 1992 book Literally.

I found references to these tracks in a 2013 "unreleased PSB tracks" list:
Faster
Holding Back
Love Letter
What Does It Feel Like
What Would I Know?

So out of the list, the unaccounted tracks are:
Hold On My Heart
Room With A Viewer

The site doesn't have all of the latest officially released songs, so I wouldn't call this new album info.
Doesn't have No Boundaries, for example.
As others have said, they could be working titles for songs that have been released.

Not long I reckon.... late November or early December, but they won't want it to happen too close to the release of Dreamland. Title announcement and another song, followed by digital/physical formats later in December, or early Jan?

Why? I'm very curious about cassettes. I understand vinyl, but what is the attraction of tapes? I never really loved them at the time.

Because there's been an indie hype around cassettes for quite a while now. I don't think PSB will jump on that bandwagon, though. I mean ... c'mon, they hardly ever release coloured vinyl which every act with 300 facebook followers does nowadays ... so I guess it's a bit too much to expect them to have cassettes for sale. ;-)

PS I wish they'd install some proper merch instead which, for a band that artistic (in their past), has been crap almost all of the time.

    the best PSB T-Shirts have always been non-official ones. The ones the NME were selling a few years ago were great.(The cones, Chris's Can you forgive her? glasses and the Go West Hats) Theres some great ones on redouble at the moment. Ive picked up a Paninaro one and a West End girls lyric one there.

    This is a song about boys and girls. You hear it playing all over the world.

    Agree. My fave PSB t shirt is unofficial with the DJ Culture name and font. Very simple but effective.

    Does anyone recall that cartoon that won the Pandemonium tour competition? I printed that on s couple of white Ts and it looked great!
