Yes, this is another obvious reason to remix that track. Also, it could be remixed for a club/radio promo only for Latin America. Or for some regional re-release of album. Or for "deluxe" re-package of "Super". (I can't believe they're releasing third album in a row without luxurious deluxe edition with second CD; with all of my love to "Elysium", I don't consider the instrumental version of it as real and valuable bonus.)

And while I agree with Tenlow on his words, we should remember that Boys released "Beautiful People" as German-only single, so... everything is possible here. But thanks heavens, chances are small :D.
"I think it’s an amazingly good album, I’ve got to be honest with you. It’s one of the albums I feel most proud of. But for people who don’t really know us, and have a sort of an idea about us, ‘Electric’ is more what the Pet Shop Boys are meant to be."
(Neil Tennant, speaking about "Elysium" on the eve of "Electric" release.)

German website "plattentests.de". The header says "30 years awake" and the review is 7/10.

The true is that this sounds so good as I didn't have a direct contact with "Winner" since late 2012.

EDIT: Oh, sorry. I am lost between threads! It should be moved to Documentary section :(

German Rolling Stone magazine's verdict is 4 1/2 out of 5 stars claiming "30 years after their debut, Pet Shop Boys show their class once more".

Can't buy a hit, though, and Twitter hates them.

I should have stuck with Brother Beyond.

Could a German-speaker (Steffen?) give us non-German speakers a proper (non-auto/Google) translation? It would be very, very much appreciated!

The harder I tryeeee... Tryeeee

A week until I get to hear the album

Must say they're pulling out all the stops with PR this time

Considering they aren't with Parlophone that's really impressive. Actually why didn't Parlophone perform so well with PR pre album releases ?

The PSB are clearly "unleashed", the sheer massive rave element to Super (and to a large degree Electric), will win them a lot of new fans. (whether "traditional" fans like it or not)
