The first song on the EP, “Give stupidity a chance”, can now be listened to on streaming services, download stores and on YouTube and is described by Neil Tennant as “a satirical song about the poor quality of political leadership in the modern world”.

A CD of “Agenda” is also available to pre-order exclusively with Pet Shop Boys’ once-a-year publication “Annually" which has been announced today and will be published on April 12th. Find out more at the link below. A 12-inch vinyl EP of the four tracks will also be commercially released on April 12th.
Discussing the EP, Neil Tennant said: “It contains three satirical songs and one rather sad song. I think it’s because of the times we’re living through.” The four tracks were produced by Tim Powell and Pet Shop Boys and recorded towards the end of last year. They will not be included on Pet Shop Boys’ next album which is being produced by Stuart Price and is due for release in the autumn.
