Synthpop pioneers Erasure release their eagerly anticipated new album, Tomorrow’s World, out on 3 October, available on CD, download and as a special edition double CD with a bonus disc featuring exclusive tracks.
First single, ‘When I Start To (Break It All Down)‘ is released on 26 September 2011.
With synthetic melodies and electronic beats as dominant as ever, Erasure’s anthems of hedonism and heartache are set to strike a universal chord once more. Tomorrow’s World is the sound of Erasure rebooted, rejuvenated and fully recharged. Timeless and universal, they never look back. Such is the essence of great pop: a glorious celebration of right here, right now.
The album is produced by one of the dance scene’s most exciting new talents, Frankmusik (production credits include Lady Gaga, Pet Shop Boys, Ellie Goulding) and mixed by Rob Orton.
Tomorrow’s World was written in New York, London, and at Vince Clarke’s cabin studio in Maine following a short break for Erasure, which saw Andy Bell recording and releasing his second solo album Non-Stop, and Vince Clarke reuniting with former Yazoo partner Alison Moyet for a recent tour. Tomorrow’s World was recorded in Maine, London and Los Angeles between January and June 2011, with Vince using his vintage collection of analog synths for the final touch. The end result is a collection of electronic songs that sound totally contemporary and classic at the same time. All songs are written by Bell and Clarke.
From Lady Gaga to Metronomy, the futurist, electronic sound Erasure championed is more relevant today than ever and once again re-charging the global music scene. The award-winning duo of Vince Clarke and Andy Bell unleashed on the nation a succession of both influential and chart-topping pop anthems. Songs like “A Little Respect”, “Sometimes”, “Victim Of Love”, “Ship Of Fools”, “Chains Of Love”, “The Circus” and “Breathe” ensured a formidable presence on the singles charts complemented by five consecutive No 1 albums, including “The Innocents”, “Wild!”, “Chorus” and the beginning of the worldwide Abba revival, “Abba-esque”.
Details of the double CD version of the album have been announced and include exclusive track “Give Me Life”, plus remixes from Gareth Jones and producer Frankmusik plus demo versions.
