Morten Harket

Morten Harket, until recently the lead singer of Aha, will release a solo album in April which includes a new song by Tennant/Lowe. The album is called "Out Of My Hands" and the new song by Pet Shop Boys is entitled "Listening". Harket approached Pet Shop Boys in September last year and was offered the recently written ballad which Neil and Chris thought would suit his voice. More details about Harket's new album can be found at his website (link below).

Don Cornelius RIP

Very sad news about the death of the legendary Don Cornelius, originator and presenter of "Soul Train". He was an important and respected figure in music and was very welcoming to us when we appeared on the show in 1986. It was such a thrill for us to be on "Soul Train". Neil x
