listen hear! Song of the Day: Soft Cell collaborate with Pet Shop Boys and deliver "Purple Zone"
listen hear! spotlights a song we like and think you will too.
It’s the 80’s once again! “Purple Zone” is the first collaboration between legendary British synth-pop groups Soft Cell and Pet Shop Boys. The track will appear on Happiness Not Included, Soft Cell’s first new album in 20 years, due May 6 via BMG.
The collaboration came about after Pet Shop Boys Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe attended a Soft Cell reunion show in London, heard the song and loved it. The two legends of electro-pop initially planned for Pet Shop Boys to remix the song, but quickly mutated into a full collaboration.
