The BRIT and Ivor Novello winning pop duo have released a staggering number of albums, including 5 UK Number 1’s, 17 top 10 singles (35 singles charted in the UK Top 40) and toured extensively, most recently with The Violet Flame worldwide tour which included two sold out dates at London’s Forum.

Always – The Very Best Of Erasure – will be released on CD, download and deluxe 3CD / download. The single disc features hit after hit – from ‘Who Needs Love Like That’ (30 years after its original release in September 1985), the perfect pop of ‘A Little Respect’, to ‘Blue Savannah’, ‘Stop!’, ‘Take A Chance On Me’ (taken from the number 1 single ‘Abbaesque’ , ‘Love To Hate You’ and ‘Oh L’Amour’ (taken from their debut album, Wonderland (1986) plus the brand new version of ‘Sometimes’, originally released in October 1986.

In addition to a full CD worth of hits that will be familiar to anyone that’s owned a radio, television set or music player over the past three decades, the deluxe CD issue will come with two further discs of remixes, packaged in a hardback book format with a booklet and archive photographs. CD2 and CD3’s tracklisting is an eclectic mix from past to present featuring remixes from Moby, William Orbit, The Grid (Richard Norris & Dave Ball of Soft Cell) plus brand new remixes from Grumbling Fur, GRN and Vince Clarke, full tracklisting below.

The anniversary celebrations continue into 2016, thirty years after the release of their debut album Wonderland, with the release of a deluxe super box featuring extended versions, B-sides & rarities, live tracks, remixes and much, much more. A series of vinyl reissues begins in Feb 2016 with Wonderland, The Circus and The Innocents available on 180gsm vinyl.

’Sometimes (2015)’ is taken from the brand new Erasure album ‘Always – The Very Best Of Erasure’. Featuring music from all stages of the band’s 30-year career – including ‘A Little Respect’, ‘Blue Savannah’, ‘Drama!’, ‘Always’, ‘Breathe’ ‘Love To Hate You’ and ‘Elevation’ – the compilation will be released on October 30th.
