hmv presents: My Inspiration Podcast - A Pet Shop Boys Special

The third season of hmv's podcast, My Inspiration, kicks off next week, but before that, we have a special episode. 

To celebrate the release of their new album Hotspot, we sat down with Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe, better known as the Pet Shop Boys.

The pair have curated an in-store display for hmv, which shows off their favourite albums, films and books. You can check out their selections here. 

We spoke to the pair about the albums they chose, which include selections from Kraftwerk, David Bowie and Dusty Springfield and you can hear that chat in full.

We also chatted about the making of Hotspot, their work with producer Stuart Price and their grand plans for a Greatest Hits tour.


My Inspiration will return next week for our third series, the first guest is singer La Roux...

My Inspiration is a new series from hmv in which we give musicians, actors, filmmakers and producers the chance to take a welcome break from talking about themselves and instead talk about their greatest inspiration.

To check out all the previous episodes, which include interviews with Big Narstie, Luke Evans, Jillian Bell, Dani Filth, Kate Tempest and The Divine Comedy, click here.
