NEW PET SHOP BOYS REMIX  OF LATEST CLAPTONE SINGLE "QUEEN OF ICE" FT. DIZZY OUT NOW

Claptone has now tapped legendary UK duo Pet Shop Boys to remix his single, “Queen Of Ice” ft. Dizzy, from his widely celebrated album ‘Closer’. Following up the Nora En Pure remix, Pet Shop Boys flip “Queen Of Ice” into a sensational remix, infused with captivating pop and house elements. To coincide with this news, Claptone also announces his first round of North American dates for 2022.

Pet Shop Boys are masters at captivating the listener instantly, as an icey ambiance builds into an infectious dance groove paired with Dizzy’s beautiful vocals. In true Pet Shop Boys style, this remix boasts dancefloor and radio appeal, taking the popularity of the original to dazzling new heights.

“When my remix for ‘Love Is A Bourgeois Construct’ was released in December of 2013, I felt that it was the peak of Claptone. But three artist albums and countless hit songs later I can proudly say I was wrong. Still, I felt like I was on top of the world back then and I feel the same way today as Pet Shop Boys return the favor and remix 'Queen of Ice‘ ft. Dizzy. Almost 40 years ago they started creating club-influenced pop, opening up doors for underground club music on the radio and in the charts. Their work in the 80s, 90s and 2000’s is the reason why dance music is in the DNA of every top hit today. Moreover I am deeply impressed about how they managed to stay in charge of their own image, creating ever changing avatars of themselves before that word was common goods, hence fighting any notion of authenticity and rockism, consistently emphasizing the act of performance. They are true pioneers still producing great music and expanding their very own world, what an inspiration.” - Claptone

“Queen Of Ice” is the seventh single from Claptone’s globally renowned third album 'Closer', co-produced by Stuart Price (Dua Lipa, The Killers, Madonna) that was released in November 2021. Along with support from shrewd talents, Claptone enlisted timeless vocalists from a myriad of eras such as Barry Manilow and Seal, fresh-faced acts like James Vincent McMorrow and Mansionair, as well as repeat collaborators Nathan Nicholson and Peter Bjorn and John (to name a few). Quoted as “enlarging Claptone’s legacy even more”, ‘Closer’ has enjoyed global success, showcasing Claptone’s innate ability to blend commercial and underground elements in perfect fashion.
