Erasure Announces New Album 'Snow Globe' Released November 11th 2013

Erasure have announced a new album release, Snow Globe, out on  November 11th 2013. Snow Globe is a collection of original compositions and seasonal classics, and follows 2011's album, Tomorrow's World.
 
The first single, "Gaudete," is Erasure's take on the traditional Latin carol, which will be recognizable by many after Steeleye Span's version in the early 70's.
 
Originally programmed by Vince with just a drum accompaniment, he ended up adding keyboard lines to complement the raw rhythmic surge. "I just love the song," says Andy. "I haven't actually heard him sing better," says Vince of Andy stepping back into the booth. "I found my inner choirboy again," says Andy. "I thought I'd lost him but he was there all along."
 
Unlike the bells and whistles, glitter and tinsel sets that crowd the market come Christmas-time, Snow Globe is possessed of something more in the wistfully, strangely subdued celebratory mould of recent seasonal albums by Tracey Thorn and Kate Bush. "We managed to strip everything back to bare essentials," says Vince, approvingly of the more minimal approach Erasure followed for this project. "White Christmas" almost has a drone all the way through it. I love that."
 
Formed 28 years ago, the award-winning songwriting duo of Vince Clarke and Andy Bellunleashed on the nation a succession of both influential and chart-topping pop anthems of the '80's, '90's through to today. Songs like "A Little Respect", "Sometimes", "Victim Of Love", "Ship Of Fools", "Blue Savannah", "Star", "Chains Of Love", "Who Needs Love (Like That)", "Love To Hate You",  "Drama!", "Always" and "Breathe," ensured a formidable presence on the singles charts complemented by five consecutive No 1 albums in the UK including "The Innocents", "Wild!",  "Chorus" and the beginning of the worldwide Abba revival "Abba-esque".
 
The new album, Snow Globe, will be released on November 11th, 2013.
