Literally 39 received!

#1 Post by wieske » Fri 18 Jan 2013, 10:14 am

I just went to the letterbox and guess what I found... Literally 39!!!!

It will be a very good read for the weekend I think. This time it's a very thick magazine as well! Great stuff!

We have luck. It seems that the Belgian subscribers received their copy very fast this time :dance:

You gotta love a world where Brussles get their copy before people who live about 20 miles from the address (i.e. me!)

Also received in southern Ireland this morning. Nice surprise.

The usual merchandise sheet was just for the pen & pencil set that was the renewal gift a few years ago.

This is what they mention:

Given that Elysium has only just been released, it would be neither reasonable nor typical for Literally readers to hold out high hopes of another all-new Pet Shop Boys album any time soon.
Nontheless...
'It may be sooner than you think', says Neil, mysteriously.
'If all goes to plan...', says Chris, 'And the clue is that our next album is normally a reaction to the previous one. A fan on the webite said that our next show should be more banging and have strobes. Bear that in mind.


Also, the Turin album will be 45 minutes and have 6 tracks. They've finished 5 and it'll be released ("performed" as quoted in Literally) in 2013 or 2014

Seems to me they're not allowed to announce it yet but are clearly trying to telegraph the imminent dance album release.

Seems like quite some songs are written and recorded which are not used on the album. They spent quite some time to a track called "Vocal", which did not end up on the album, they've been working on an unspecified Bruce Springsteen song (my guess: 'Streets of Philadelphia'), a 'Rihanna hit single she has still not recorded' called No More Ballads amongst some others.
