27 September 1993
A new Pet Shop Boys album, Very, was released on September 27, 1993. It was produced by the Pet Shop Boys, with additional production by Stephen Hague, and was remixed by Stephen Hague and Mike “Spike” Drake. “It is called Very says Neil, “because it is very Pet Shop Boys: It’s very up, It’s very hi-energy, it’s very romantic, it’s very sad, it’s very pop, it’s very danceable, and some of it is very funny…” At the same time as they recorded Very the Pet Shop Boys also recorded six further songs which they describe as “non-structured” and which appear as a limited edition accompanying Very. This second album is titled Relentless, “because,” Neil explains, “it is”.
