Recorded in Los Angeles, the album was co-produced by Pet Shop Boys and engineer/producer, Andrew Dawson, who has won three Grammy awards for his work with Kanye West. "Elysium" features twelve new songs which display a warm, deep electronic sound, and includes orchestral arrangements by Joachim Horsley, Andrew Dawson and Bean Leathers. Backing vocals are provided on many of the tracks by veteran singers Oren, Maxine and Julie Waters (whose long career spans sessions with The Jackson Five to Adele), and singer/songwriter James Fauntleroy. Producer Andrew Dawson recently said: "It was really exciting for me to work with Pet Shop Boys - the breadth of their career has been phenomenal. They both have incredible ideas and I’ve definitely learned a few tricks from them on making records". The Pet Shop Boys added "we wanted to make this album in a different environment. Despite frequent visits there we have never made an album in Los Angeles. Working there with Andrew Dawson has enabled us to make a very fresh-sounding album." A special limited edition deluxe version contains and extra CD of instrumentals for each of the tracks on the album and is housed in a deluxe lift-top box housing 2CD Wallets plus an 8-page booklet. A sneak peek of the album track "Invisible" may be viewed as a short film by renowned artist/filmmaker Brian Bress at www.petshopboys.co.uk or on VEVO.
