The EP takes its title “Lost” from the first track, “The lost room,” but “it also seems to represent some kind of larger, philosophical or political point, where there have been moments lately where the world feels a bit lost in terms of the direction it is going. (sic)”
Both ‘Lost’ and the 2023 version of ‘Annually’ will be released on April 15.

In 2020, the pair credited their long career with “never” losing the “sense of playfulness” with their work.
Neil said at the time: “We’re having a lot of fun writing. There’s a lot of laughter.
“We’re really lucky. I know most people in music have much more difficult relationships than we do.
“It’s not just a job. It’s more playful than that. All creativity comes from a sense of play.
“Chris and I have never lost that sense of playfulness.”
Asked if they have any creative differences, Neil insisted, “We can do whatever we want to do within Pet Shop Boys.”
