Disco 3 is the thirteenth album by the UK electronic music duo Pet Shop Boys. It was released in 2003. It consists of five remixes of songs and B-sides from their previous album, Release, three new tracks, a new recording of "Positive role model" from their 2001 musical Closer to Heaven, and a cover version of "Try it (I'm in love with a married man)", originally by Oh Romeo, band of former Pet Shop Boys producer Bobby Orlando.

"Somebody Else's Business" and "Positive Role Model" were destined for their cancelled hits compilation in 2000. "Positive Role Model" also appeared on the Germany-only single, "London" in 2002.

"If looks could kill" and "Try it..." debuted during a 2002 Peel Session, along with "A powerful friend", a song that remained unreleased until it was uploaded to the "Exclusives Tracks" section of the band's official website.[8] It was also released as the b-side to their 2010 single "Love Life".

This album has been released with the Copy Control protection system in some regions.
