‘SMASH The Singles 1985-2020’ will be available in a variety of formats including 3CD box set, 6LP vinyl box set and digitally, as well as two special limited edition formats available exclusively via the Pet Shop Boys’ store – 6LP white vinyl box set and 3-cassette box set. A 3CD/2Blu-ray edition will also be released which includes the complete video collection of the singles.
Pet Shop Boys commented: “As we start work on a new album, and later this year continue our ‘Dreamworld’ greatest hits tour, it seems like a good time to take stock and bring together every single we’ve released.”
Ahead of SMASH, Pet Shop Boys will publish the 2023 edition of their ‘Annually’ book on April 14. This year’s 64-page hardback book will include an exclusive CD EP titled ‘Lost’, comprising four tracks recorded in 2015. The songs will also be available on digital platforms in mid-April. From May, the duo will play more dates across the UK and Europe as part of the ‘Dreamworld: The Greatest Hits Live’ tour. The shows include a date at The Eden Project in Cornwall and headline performances at Primavera Sound in Barcelona, Madrid and Porto.
