“It was great,” Neil Tennant said about working with Xenomania on ‘Yes’. “We wrote some very sort of odd pop songs. We just thought Xenomania were the best pop producers in the country if not the world at the moment. Also they do the electropop thing, like we were meant to do, so we went and met them, met Brian Higgins. It was such a lot of fun making it. We wrote last single in the process, with Xenomania, co-write. So it’s been really good.”
