LISTEN TO NEW TRACK ‘OH WHAT A WORLD’

SOLD OUT UK TOUR INCLUDES TWO NIGHTS AT HAMMERSMITH APOLLO

“These new arrangements give Vince and Andy’s finest and most considered moments a towering resonance and poignancy” – Electronic Sound

“Its imaginative rearrangements cast the songs in a new light” – Classic Pop 4* Album of the Issue

ERASURE (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) have released two videos from World Beyond, the new album out on 9 March 2018.

World Beyond is a collaboration with Echo Collective, the Brussels based collective of post-classical musicians best known for their ongoing collaborative work with A Winged Victory for the Sullen, Johann Johannsson, Dustin O’Halloran and Stars of the Lid and sees the entirety of Erasure’s 2017 album, World Be Gone, given a post-classical rework.

Oh What A World 

The videos are for ‘Oh What A World’, a dramatic look at recent world events, and ‘Still It’s Not Over’, which tackles the LGBT+ rights movement post-Stonewall and highlights the band’s place within that movement. Both videos were filmed during the recording of World Beyond.

World Beyond was recorded over ten days by Andy Bell and six performers from the Echo Collective. The album was produced by Echo Collective, mixed by Gareth Jones and arranged by the Echo Collective’s Gary De Cart, Margaret Hermant and Neil Leiter.

The tracks featured on World Beyond show award-winning songwriters Vince Clarke and Andy Bell in a more reflective mood, giving the world and recent political upheavals a thoughtful examination. This new collaboration gives a new dimension to the tracks and the band’s optimism about the future remains clear and bright. Andy Bell explains: “…the reinterpretations have brought such enormous context to the songs, it has created a new place for them.”

The original idea for the album developed from Vince Clarke, who initially suggested that a single from World Be Gone could be given an orchestral reinterpretation, but as the idea expanded and took shape, he spoke at length to the Echo Collective ahead of the recording. “It was great to talk through ideas with Echo Collective and then see how their arrangements took shape. The collaboration has given elements of the album a whole new feel and Andy’s vocals remain as powerful and uplifting as ever,” says Clarke.

Erasure’s 2018 headline tour (with support from Bright Light, Bright Light) is underway in the UK. The sold out UK leg of the tour finishes with two nights at the Hammersmith Apollo before the band travel to Europe and then continue their dates in North and South America – full details below.
