ERASURE Announces Vinyl Release Of ‘Always (The Very Best Of Erasure)’

The original version of ‘Always’ was released back in 2015, to commemorate and celebrate the world-famous English synth-pop duo’s 30th anniversary. Now, it’s being re-released on vinyl and includes a wide breadth of new music that wasn’t included on the original release, including music from their 2017 release, ‘World Be Gone’, and other modern releases from the duo. The four-sided double disc vinyl will include 20 songs that cover the duo’s near 40 years of music production, and follows up their experimental album ‘Day-Glo (Based on a True Story)’.

Andy Bell and Vince Clarke have a rich history outside of their work together. Clarke was first inspired to make electronic music by the band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) and had several different ventures with other artists, including, but not limited to Depeche Mode, Yazoo and The Assembly. Then, in 1985, he placed an ad for singers in Melody Maker magazine, and Bell was one of the singers who applied. They formed Erasure, and nearly 40 years later, they’re still releasing projects under the same name; including this re-release of ‘Always’. Judging by the release of ‘Day-Glo’, they’re not stopping any time soon, either.

As previously mentioned, the double disc vinyl will include 20 songs from Erasure’s colossal library of music. Coming out on August 18th, it will include hits like ‘Who Needs Love Like That’, ‘Blue Savannah’ and ‘A Little Respect’, among others. The listener can expect exactly what Erasure has delivered for the past half-century; Bell’s soulful vocals and Clarke’s catchy beats combine to form infectious electro pop that sticks in your brain even after you stop listening. Erasure has been capturing the hearts of the English electronic scene for decades; now, you can get your own piece of that decades of history by pre-ordering ‘Always’ through the link here.
