One thing that’s stellar about Pet Shop Boys in this era of the British duo’s storied career: they’re not ones to shy away from good old-fashioned extended mixes. And for “Memory Of The Future,” their third single off Elysium, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe not only enlisted Stuart Price (Madonna, The Killers, Take That) to remix the track for its official release, the digital bundle (out January 1) comes wielding the “Stuart Price Extended Mix.”
“Stuart Price made the new seven-inch mix of ‘Memory of the future’ for us and then extended it into this fantastic futuristic dance mix,” says Tennant of pairing up with Price (who, we must say, would make a great choice of producer for their next studio album). Longtime fans of the Boys will note some winking similarities between this remix and the one Shep Pettibone did for their 1986 single “Love Comes Quickly.” What better way to conjure up a memory of the future?
Listen To Stuart Price’s full remix below.
Other remixes of “Memory Of The Future” come courtesy of Ulrich Schnauss, DJ Waldo Squash and London duo Digital Dog. The single, when released digitally on January 1, will also arrive with three new b-sides: “Listening,” “One Night” and “Inside.”
