Soft Cell and Pet Shop Boys team up for new single

Watch the video for Purple Zone

Soft Cell have a new single, Purple Zone, which is a collaboration with the Pet Shop Boys.

The song features on the forthcoming album, *Happiness Not Included, and was one of five new tracks performed on last year’s tour. You can watch the video below.

Purple Zone is written by Soft Cell and produced by the Pet Shop Boys and Dave Ball. Neil Tennant contributes vocals and both him and Chris Lowe feature in the video.

The good news is that physical formats have been announced. There’s a four-track CD single and a four-track 12-inch vinyl. The latter has two Pet Shop Boys remixes not available on the CD. The bad news – that might elicit a Purple Groan – is that there is a glacial wait, until November, for these to be released. Not just the vinyl, CD fans still have to wait as well, even though the delay is of course largely to do with vinyl production logjams. These physical formats don’t appear to be available via standard retail channels, by the way.

Purple Zone is released on 11 November 2022, six months after the album which is out on 6 May!
