Pet Shop Boys days from Yes

Pet Shop Boys return with their tenth album, Yes, next week. In over 2 decades together, the duo of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe have sold over 30 million records and created such memorable hits as “West End Girls,” and “It’s a Sin.” Yes was produced by Xenomania (Girls Aloud, Sugababes, Cher, Kylie Minogue, Saint Etienne), and features guitar work by ex-Smith Johnny Marr and orchestral arrangements by Owen Pallett Last Shadow Puppets, Final Fantasy).

“We can’t seem to remember how we came up with the title Yes,” says Neil. “Our official story is that we may have taken it from the famous Yoko Ono exhibition in 1967 where you had to climb up a step ladder –as John Lennon famously did – pick up a magnifying glass, look at a tiny word written on the ceiling, and the word was ‘yes’. I think it partly came from that.” (Chris adds: “We thought No was a bit negative.”)
