PopArt (The Hits):


PopArt - cover


info:

compilation album
release date: 24 November 2003
chart: UK #30, US #-

Audio remastered by Tim Young at Metropolis.

PopArt is a compilation of Pet Shop Boys' top-20 UK singles along with two new tracks, "Miracles" and "Flamboyant" which have subsequently also been singles.
Contrary to most "best of" compilations (including the earlier Discography), the tracks on the CDs are not arranged chronologically, but split into two categories. Neil and Chris split the tracks into ones they thought were pure pop music ("Pop") and the ones that they thought were more creative/experimental ("Art").
After three years of its release in the rest of the world, PopArt was finally released in the USA in October 2006. The delay was due to legal problems caused by the fact that since Pet Shop Boys began, they have been with four different record labels in the USA: EMI (1985-1995), Atlantic (1996-1998), Sire (1999-2001) and Sanctuary (2002-2003).
