CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Spin Magazine reports:

Two generations of synth pop artists joined forces on the Pet Shop Boys’ new single “Dreamland.” The UK dance legends collaborated with aughts electropop upstarts Years & Years on the highly disco-inspired single featuring a duet between Pet Shop Boys frontman Neil Tennant and Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander.

Pet Shop Boys haven’t disclosed a title for the new album, which drops on January 24. However, the unnamed album is described by the band as “the third part of a Stuart Price-produced trilogy which started with Electric in 2013 and continued with Super in 2016.” In the meantime, Pet Shop Boys are preparing for a 2020 greatest hits tour of the UK.

I was first introduced to Years & Years when they performed at NYC’s Pride Island 2017 and soon learned that they have racked up hundreds of millions of YouTube views with their biggest hits.
