The English synth-pop duo, Pet Shop Boys, will be releasing a song a day this week, leading up to their new EP called Annually. Annually will be a 64 page hard covered book which will feature behind the scenes footage, interviews, photography plus answers to personal letters from fans.
This mix features brand new music from legendary 80s new wave artists. All of these songs have been released after 2010. Many of these songs are as good, if not better, then the artists original work from the 80’s. It’s great to see that these bands that we grew up with are still making relevant music today.
