“Arguably one of their best pieces of work” – Louder Than War
ERASURE release their new single, ‘World Be Gone’, on 28 July and have unveiled Boxed In’s remix of the track. Listen to the remix by British songwriter and producer, Boxed In aka Oli Bayston (who has previously remixed Public Service Broadcasting, Ghostpoet and Blossoms) here:
The duo have also just announced details of a very special ARTE TV Berlin Live show which will be streamed live on Monday 24 July. Further details here: http://motor.de/berlin-live/
The new single aches with gorgeous melancholy for “the loss of our souls” and finds Andy Bell and Vince Clarke, the BRIT and Ivor Novello winning songwriting duo, in a reflective mood giving the world and recent political upheavals a thoughtful examination. The album’s artwork directly references the track, showing a ship’s masthead rising up after being submerged in stormy waters, looking optimistically forward to the future.
‘World Be Gone’ is a new mix of the title track of the band’s latest album. World Be Gone, released last month, entered the UK Official Album Chart at Number 6, and went to Number 1 in the UK Official Vinyl Chart and the UK Official Independent Albums Chart and is the band’s first Top 10 studio album in 20 years.
The maxi CD and digital EP will feature remixes of ‘World Be Gone’ from producer Gareth Jones and Boxed In plus ‘Oh What A World’ remixed by fan favourites GRN and Manhattan Clique plus House of Labs’ take on ‘Just A Little Love’. In addition, a brand new bonus track will be included, listen to ‘I Need You Now’ here: https://youtu.be/RhyzFjHzG0A
