THIS EDITION HAS NOW SOLD OUT

Hand signed by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe and limited to just 350 copies worldwide, this beautiful limited edition box set of Pet Shop Boys' 'Electric' album is very special. This custom-made, fluoroscent-edged, multi-coloured acrylic box houses PSB's acclaimed new album pressed on five fluoroscent-coloured heavyweight vinyl discs, contained in bespoke fluoroscent outer and inner sleeves.

Designed by Farrow in collaboration with PSB and The Vinyl Factory, this limited edition is sure to become a highly sought after collectors classic - following on from 2009's 'Yes' box set which was showcased in the Design Museum, won Creative Review's 'Best in Book' and was voted Record Collector's 'Most Collectible Product of the 21st Century'.

"Working on these Vinyl Factory editions really allows us to express what we do best," says Farrow. "We are currently prototyping and testing The Electric Box and we are really excited about the direction we are heading - it's going to be special."

Electric is Pet Shop Boys triumphant new studio album and the first PSB studio album to be produced by Stuart Price.

‘Electric’ features nine tracks in total – eight brand new Pet Shop Boys’ songs plus a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘The last to die’.  The result is as uncompromising a collection of dance anthems as Pet Shop Boys have ever made - which has garnered them critical praise across the board, with everyone from The Guardian to The Daily Mail singing its praises.

Pet Shop Boys said: “’Electric’ is very much set on the dance floor.  Our latest album often evolves as a response to our previous album and, whereas ‘Elysium’ had a reflective mood, ‘Electric’ is pretty banging! And working with Stuart Price on a studio album is something we have wanted to do for a very long time”.

Stuart Price said: "Making 'Electric' was an exciting experience. We recorded it between Berlin, London and Los Angeles using various techniques between old school synth and drum machine programming and new school computer mangling. For me it was a chance to work with two people who shaped so much of my musical taste, yet who keep on pushing farther in both a natural and unexpected fashion."
