The iconic group has also made waves of late for a number of vinyl sales successes as well as some controversy.
Most recently the duo slammed Drake for his alleged use of their track ‘West End Girl’ in his new album ‘For All The Dogs‘. The duo took to X (formerly Twitter) to criticize Drake for the track’s use without the duo’s permission and doing so without providing the necessary credit.
Pet Shop Boys have also seen quite the lucrative success with multiple vinyl releases through Discogs. To celebrate the long-enduring career of the Pet Shop Boys, the duo has been rolling out vinyl re-releases of classic albums, helping collectors get their hands on previously rare albums. The re-release of their 2013 album Electric sold for an impressive $2,222. The re-release did not depreciate the previous work but instead added to the rarity of the album in its entirety. Releasing with 4 fluorescent disks and one solid white, the extended vinyl gave fans and collectors a new and worthy addition to many vinyl collections, though the re-release was itself quite rare, having only 350 copies pressed. Much in the same vein, Pet Shop Boys also re-released their classic 2009 album Yes which accrued $1,960 on Discogs.
