A 3CD/2Blu-ray edition will also be released which includes the complete video collection of the singles.

Pet Shop Boys, who just shared they’re hard at work on a new album, commented on the decision to create a new hit collection.

“As we start work on a new album, and later this year continue our ‘Dreamworld’ greatest hits tour, it seems like a good time to take stock and bring together every single we’ve released.”

Ahead of SMASH, Pet Shop Boys will publish the 2023 edition of their Annually book on April 14. This year’s 64-page hardback book will include an exclusive CD EP titled Lost, comprising four tracks recorded in 2015. The new music will also be available on digital formats.

The duo has previously released several hits collections. In 1991 they released Discography which included all their hits to date alongside a few new tracks. A second greatest hits collection came in 2003 with PopArt. The band have also put out several collections of their b-sides and remixes.
