ERASURE (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) release a brand new track today, ‘Still It’s Not Over’, taken from their forthcoming studio album, World Be Gone – out on 19 May 2017. Listen to the track right here.
‘Still It’s Not Over’ illustrates the album’s reflective mood and shows Erasure’s spirit of resistance is undiminished with lyrics that serve as a potent reminder of the band’s place in the gay rights movement.
World Be Gone sees the award-winning songwriters giving the world and recent political upheavals a thoughtful examination and, as highlighted on the painted artwork showing a ship’s masthead rising up from being submerged in the stormy waters, looking forward to the future.
Written, performed and produced by Erasure and mixed by Matty Green, MOJO have described the album as “A triumph of achingly beautiful pop protest music.” while Electronic Sound describe its “effortless electronic majesty”.
World Be Gone will be available on CD, ltd edition orange vinyl, regular vinyl & cassette and is available to pre-order now.
Following the album’s release, ‘Love You To The Sky’ Maxi CD and Digital EP will be out on 2 June. The EP includes mixes by Ladytron, Matt Pop, Loframes, Adam Turner and the band’s own Vince Clarke as well as a previously unreleased b-side, ‘Nothing I Could Say’. ‘Love You To The Sky’ maxi CD preorder here.
