Release is the eighth studio album by the English synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys. It was first released in 2002.
After the release of their previous studio album, Nightlife, it was originally planned that they would release a greatest hits collection in the autumn of 2000 with the two new tracks "Positive Role Model" and "Somebody Else's Business". While recording the new songs for the hits collection it was decided to produce a full studio album instead. .
