Two titans of synth-pop have joined forces for the first time as Soft Cell and Pet Shop Boys announce a mouth-watering collaboration.
Written by Soft Cell, Purple Zone has been transformed into a duet with Pet Shop Boys and features lead vocals from Marc Almond and Neil Tennant. The track is a co-production between Dave Ball and Pet Shop Boys.
Purple Zone is taken from Soft Cell’s forthcoming album *Happiness Not Included.
The yearning, airy pop of Purple Zone will be released on 22 March.
Four decades on from the legendary ‘A Secret Wish’, ex Propaganda members Claudia Brücken and Susanne Freytag are back as xPropaganda. Reunited with original producer Stephen Lipson – fresh from his work on Hans Zimmer’s score to the latest Bond film, ‘No Time To Die’- the trio have unveiled a new album that’s conceptually and sonically the follow-up-that-never was to their mid-‘80s classic. With dramatic beats and magical soundscapes offset beautifully by Claudia and Susanne’s expressive, passionate vocals, ‘The Heart Is Strange’ evokes the spirit and passion of the original Propaganda whilst sounding effortlessly contemporary.
