The new Pet Shop Boys record, Elysium, arrives on September 10. The album artwork is above.

It’s nice and minimal in the grand tradition of all things PSB, but I keep staring and can’t help but think that something’s still missing. It’s just not quite right, is it? Therefore, I’ve gone ahead and done a little Photoshopping to see what I can do.

There we go. Much better.

While we’re on the subject, the boys have just dropped a remix package for the album’s lead single “Winner,” which includes a delicious mix by one of my favorite acts of the year (that I’ve flopped terribly at covering), Niki & The Dove. Check that out at once.

“Winner” was released on July 3. (iTunes)
