Pet Shop Boys Relentless 30th anniversary

Pet Shop Boys have announced a 30th anniversary edition of 'Relentless'. 

The highly valued and ultra-rare album is being made available as an individual release for the first time in decades. Slated to hit shops on 20th October, fans can choose between limited-edition yellow vinyl, complete with new artwork, CD and digital formats. Pre-orders are being taken now

"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," Pet Shop Boys said in a statement about the forthcoming anniversary package. 

Originally landing in 1993, 'Relentless' is best known as one half of the double-LP 'Very Relentless', alongside bestselling LP 'Very', which hit number one in the UK album charts and produced five Top 20 singles, including 'Can You Forgive Her?' and 'Go West'. 

'Relentless', which comprises six club-ready trance, progressive house and breaks-influenced tracks such as 'KDX 125' and 'The Man Who Has Everything', only received a stand-alone release via triple-12" vinyl, and just 500 copies were pressed at the time. As a result, the long-player became one of the most sought-after pieces of Pet Shop Boys history, alongside prized collector's items like 'Electric'.
