"Flamboyant" was written and recorded by Neil and Chris during the
summer and recently mixed with additional production by Tomcraft.

The songs are split between the two discs as either "Pop" or "Art", a
decision made by Neil and Chris (which will no doubt prove

The U.S. release date for "PopArt" has not been decided yet.

Miracles happen in November - 17 September '03

Pet Shop Boys will release their first single for well over a year in
early November. The song is "Miracles" and was produced by and cowritten
with Adam F and Dan Fresh. Neil describes it as: "very beautiful, very
electronic". Strings for the track were arranged by Anne Dudley. Bonus
tracks on the CD1 release are: "We're the Pet Shop Boys", their cover
version of a song by My Robot Friend, and "Transparent". Remixes of
"Miracles" are being worked on now.



1. The Pop / Art distinction seems rather artificial.  Why not in
chronological order like Discography?

2. They referred to 'UK Top 20 hits', and so there is no 'Was it worth
it?' included which got to #24(?);

3. No 'Absolutely Fabulous' (perhaps not a surprise, really, as it
wasn't 'really' PSB);

4. The lyrics for 'Miracles' appear on http://www.petshopboys.co.uk/ ;

5. The notes mention 'No US release date decided', but I don't think we
have a _UK_ release date either?

6. Overall, not much here for the fans is there?  I think there is maybe
_one_ of the remixes that I don't possess;

7. Despite (6), I'll probably still _buy_ it :-)
