Would be a nice nod in this direction if they had a track called 'Community' on the album ... I imagine they know about this forum.
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

I wonder if #4 is a cover of the Bee Gees song - maybe as a tribute to Robin Gibb, who passed away in May?

This forum definitely deserves a song by PSB...!

No Invisible. I'm surprised tbh. Maybe it's with the download bundle like Did you see me coming?? So three new songs then. It's great we keep getting these packages. Most artists gave up doing this years ago and the few that still do cd's, fill them up with crap mixes.

A bee Gees cover?
To be honest, their magic touch with covers evaporated with the Together B-sides.
I'm normally hopelessly upbeat about PSB, but the last two singles/b-sides haven't been their best.
My level of expectation is dropping for Elysium. I don't want to see them drop the ball.

I've always like I Started A Joke, ever since I heard The Bee Gees Story on Radio 1 in the late 70s and I have it on one of their Live albums. I know the death of Robin Gibb touched Neil and it's a nice tribute. I do wish it had been used as something other than a b side though.

I can certainly 'hear' Neil singing it. :)

Winner single
On August 6th, the new Pet Shop Boys single, "Winner" will be released digitally and on CD.
The track-listing for the first digital bundle and the CD is as follows:
1. Winner
2. A certain "Je ne sais quoi"
3. The way through the woods (long version)
4. I started a joke
'A certain "Je ne sais quoi"' was originally written and recorded in 2007 and recently reworked by Chris and Neil. 'The way through the woods' was recorded in Los Angeles during the 'Elysium' sessions but Neil and Chris did more work on it subsequently, creating a much longer version. It is a setting of a poem by Rudyard Kipling and, like 'Winner', features an orchestral arrangement by Joachim Horsley, Andrew Dawson and Ben Leathers. 'I started a joke' is a cover of a Bee Gees song from the 60s and is intended as a tribute to the late Robin Gibb. All three bonus tracks have been mixed by Bob Kraushaar.
A second digital bundle will contain remixes of 'Winner', including mixes by John Dahlback and Niki And The Dove. :D

nice bundle
I was born in a hospital room with green walls, the doctor who delivered me wore a green overall, so did the nurses hovering around. So much greenery around, its no wonder that it is my favourite colour !
