“Arguably one of their best pieces of work” – Louder Than War
ERASURE – currently on tour with Robbie Williams – have announced details of ‘World Be Gone’, their new single out on maxi CD and digital EP on 28 July 2017.
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 and House of Labs’ take on ‘Just A Little Love’.
Erasure’s current stadium tour with Robbie Williams continues throughout the summer and a recently announced headline tour of the UK and Europe, many of the dates sold out on the day of release, starts in Dublin in January 2018. February will see Erasure travel throughout the UK, finishing up with a return to London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo, before heading to Germany, full details below.
Andy Bell recently created a very special playlist in honour of Pride 2017. “The experience of coming out for any young gay person is probably one of the most exciting, exhilarating times of their entire life,” Andy Bell told OUT. “For me, it was no different in the heady, fairly desolate, landscape of London in the mid ’80’s. These songs are a reflection of those times: drag queens making do, tarting themselves up for the evening and us going out into the night, not quite old enough to understand the power of beauty and youth.” – Listen here: http://po.st/ErasurePrideS
