His own tour bus wow he so RnR— Liam Gallagher (@liamgallagher) February 15, 2023
Two big names in British pop and rock are teaming up. From the 1980’s – Pet Shop Boys, who may or may not come from London’s West End, are teaming up with one-half of 1990’s rock sensation Oasis, Noel Gallagher. This is a strange union, but a union none-the-less. What are these two music figures up to? Are they collaborating on an album, a song, a tour? Let’s find out…
According to NME, Pet Shop Boys said they have collaborated with Noel Gallagher on a remix of one of his new songs with his band, High Flying Birds.
The duo confirmed the collaboration while speaking to students at Cambridge University. “We have just remixed Noel Gallagher. All collaborations are interesting,” vocalist Neil Tennant said.
He went on to explain that he and keyboardist Chris Lowe think that the aim of a collaboration is to “work with someone who makes you sound 10 times better”.
“I would like more good singers to sing more of our songs, as I think they have great potential,” continued Tennant. “As you get older you learn how music works. In the beginning you don’t really know, but now I think we know a little bit.”
Gallagher is set to release his fourth album as part of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, ‘Council Skies’, on June 2. The deluxe edition is set to include various live session recordings and several remixes, including the Pet Shop Boys collaboration and a remix of the single ‘Pretty Boy’ done by Robert Smith. Teasing Smith’s remix last month, Gallagher said that it “sounds exactly like The Cure“.
Seems collaborations are abound these days. What more is to come. Only time will tell…
