And now for something amazing.

Less than a year after releasing their dreamy eleventh studio album Elysium, the prolific Pet Shop Boys have announced that they’ve parted ways with their longtime label Parlophone Records after 28 years, signing a deal through Kobalt Music Services, which recently opened a Label Services division.

But that’s not all–they’ve already got a new album on the way called Electric (!), out in June (!!), produced by Stuart Price. (!!!)

For those unfamiliar, Price is the musical mastermind behind Madonna‘s Confessions On A Dance Floor, Scissor SistersNight Work and Kylie‘s Aphrodite. Basically, he makes perfect things even perfect-er.

And, just to make it all even better, we’ve already been given a teeny taste of what’s to come in the form of an album trailer. Unsurprisingly, it sounds brilliant — a punchy, uptempo response to their chilled-out 2012 offering.

Bring it on.

    I KNEW this was coming when they’d hinted that they’d removed some of the stompers from Elysium. Man, this is gonna be a hard one to hold out for. Stuart’s live production on their tour was stellar. Ugh… JUNE???
