Track: Sleaford Mods – West End Girls
Nottingham’s Sleaford Mods have shared a cover of Pet Shop Boys’ classic ‘West End Girls’. The cover, which not only comes with a seal of approval from the originators, will also be released with a Pet Shop Boys Remix. The digital singles arrives today, with a physical version hitting shops on Dec 15th. With all proceeds going to Shelter, the vinyl will also be available on the bands UK tour.
‘West End Girls’ by Sleaford Mods is out today and you can watch the Ewan Spencer directed video above.
What They Said: “I’ve been listening to the Pet Shop Boys’ albums Please and Actually a lot, the music still fits this landscape so well. When Andrew suggested we cover West End Girls, it was important to honour the track’s brilliance. So, when Neil and Chris gave the track their blessing our tiny minds were blown, and when we received their remix… it was almost too much. It was brilliant!”
