Pet Shop Boys announce the upcoming release of ‘Relentless’ – a special limited edition issued to celebrate the 30th anniversary of an album which occupies a legendary status in their catalogue.

Pet Shop Boys’ fifth studio album ‘Very’ was released in September 1993 to massive acclaim and success (the album was preceded by the singles ‘Can you forgive her?’ and ‘Go west’, still two of the duo’s most popular songs today). It charted at Number 1 in the UK and all five singles entered the UK Top 20.

A limited edition of the record, ‘Very Relentless’, was also released including a six-track dance album, ‘Relentless’, which was also available at the time as a rare standalone vinyl album, limited to just 500 copies, with the six tracks spread over three 12” singles. This swiftly became one of the most sought-after Pet Shop Boys artefacts. The six tracks on ‘Relentless’ have not been available since the original release.

To celebrate its 30th anniversary, the ‘Relentless’ album will now be released in a new variety of formats including a limited-edition yellow vinyl complete with new artwork, available to buy exclusively via the Pet Shop Boys’ store, as well as a CD and a digital release. All are available from 20th October 2023 via Parlophone and can be pre-ordered now.

They commented: “This album was an experiment for us 30 years ago with its six new extended dance tracks. We’re very proud of it and delighted it’s now getting the stand-alone release it deserves.”
