12-inch single

Having closed 2021 with a critically-acclaimed sold-out U.K. tour, Soft Cell share a new single "Purple Zone," a new collaboration with Pet Shop Boys taken from their eagerlly anticipated fifth studio album *Happiness Not Included. Having attended one of the tour's London shows at which the new track was performed, Pet Shop Boys immediately picked out "Purple Zone" as one of their favorites from the evening. The two legends of electro-pop intially planned for Pet Shop Boys to remix the song, but this quickly mutated into a full collaboration.

"Purple Zone" is now a dream duet for synth-pop connoisseurs as Marc Almond's ultra-expressive deliverly intertwines with Neil Tennant's wistful yearning, encapsulating the existential questions about the passing of time that are posed throughout the course of the album. Raising its tempo, Pet Shop Boys also added a hi-NRG sheen that elevates the track's moody melancholy, Chris Lowe's trademark high-drama synths producing a theatrical intensity.
