remix compilation album

chart: UK #36, US #188
Disco 3 is the thirteenth album by the Pet Shop Boys. It was released in 2003. It consists of five remixes of songs and B-sides from their previous album, Release, three new tracks, a new recording of "Positive role model" from their 2001 musical Closer to Heaven, and a cover version of "Try it (I'm in love with a married man)", originally by Oh Romeo, band of former Pet Shop Boys producer Bobby Orlando.
"If looks could kill" and "Try it..." debuted during a 2002 Peel Session, along with "A powerful friend", a song that remains unreleased.
Despite charting relatively low on UK and US charts, the album was more successful than Disco 2, and was likely an attempt to recreate the success of the original Disco.
