Pet Shop Boys Announce New Album ‘Nonetheless,’ Share Lead Single ‘Loneliness’

The duo, comprised of Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, has worked with James Ford on production for the first time.

“We wanted this album to be a celebration of the unique and diverse emotions that make us human,” they said in a statement. “From the more dance-orientated tracks to the raw poignancy of the introspective ballads, with their beautiful string arrangements, each track tells a story and contributes to the overall narrative of the album.”

They added, “We’re very excited to release this new album. Its 10 tracks are the strongest indicators of where we are today. Like much of our music it’s very reflective. It was great to work with James Ford, who we think has brought new elements to our music.

“Our demos are sometimes quite complicated, and James has dared to make us a bit more minimal at times – but also, the string arrangements are very beautiful. Some of the record is quite heart-breaking, but we hope a lot of it is also uplifting. It’s a record we’re very proud of.”
