We're The Passions

Pet Shop Boys have recorded a cover of "I'm In Love With A German Film Star" which was a minor hit for The Passions in 1981. Sam Taylor-Wood will handle vocals. You might remember her from their odd cover of Serge Gainsbourg's "Je T'Aime...Moi Non Plus." It'll be interesting to see how they make this one sound. Here's the video of their Top of the Pops "performance" of the song.

The Boys are also working on songs for a new album, roughly slated to land in early 2009. Fingers crossed!

I can't wait! I loved the Passions' song and of course, the PSB!

Seems like it would be a great combination. I'm definitely looking forward to this one.
