"Integral" is a 2007 single by British synthpop duo Pet Shop Boys, released in an electronic download-only format on 8 October. It was the only single released to promote the band's remix album Disco 4 in 2007. The track was originally released on the band's 2006 album Fundamental and many sources consider it to be the fourth single from that album.

The single was the first download-only single released by Pet Shop Boys and peaked at #197 on the UK Singles Chart. Online digital media delivery company 7digital has announced that of its top three singles of the year, Integral was number three.

Subject matter[edit]

The single criticises the Identity Cards Act 2006. A statement from the band cited the issue as the reason that Tennant ceased his well-publicized support of Tony Blair's Labour party.[citation needed] The lyrics are fully masked and converted to the homage to Yevgeny Zamyatin's legendary dystopian book We,[citation needed] in which the inhabitants of the future One State try to build The Integral, a glass spaceship, in order to solve the cosmic equation and resolve all the problems in their One State.
