Erasure Announce Brand New Album ‘World Be Gone’ Ahead Of UK Tour

Erasure (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) will release their seventeenth studio album, ‘World Be Gone’ on 19 May 2017, through Mute.

World Be Gone is the follow up to 2014’s ‘The Violet Flame’, and follows the band’s recent 30th anniversary celebrations.

Their new album sees the award-winning songwriters in a more reflective mood, 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.

Explains Vince Clarke,

“Obviously the current political climate lends itself to lots of ideas”, Andy Bell continues, “I think there’s an underswell of opinion, and people are slowly waking up. I’m hoping that people will take the album in a positive way, that they’ll use it as optimistic rabble-rousing music.”

Watch the trailer for the new album here:

The enduring BRIT and Ivor Novello winning pop duo have released a staggering number of albums, including 5 UK Number 1’s and 17 top 10 singles (35 singles charted in the UK Top 40) and their recent best of, ‘Always’, saw Erasure entering the Top 10 album charts once again.

Erasure are delighted to have been invited as special guests on Robbie Williams’ 2017 stadium tour taking place in the summer. Ahead of those dates, Erasure perform three headline shows: 27 May in Glasgow, 28 May in Manchester and 29 May at London’s historic Roundhouse. Full details below.
