Celebrating Christmas with Erasure
Out on November 11th is the new Erasure album, which will be called “Snow Globe”. “Snow Globe” is a collection of 13 original compositions and seasonal classics. The album will be preceded by a single, “Gaudete”, which is the band’s interpretation of the Medieval Christmas carol that was also a folk hit for Steeleye Span in 1973.
Vince Clarke on what it will sound like:
Well, we’ll strip the songs down as much as possible and go really minimal. The songs are great anyhow, and Andy will sing like… well, Andy is Andy and that won’t change. The only thing that will change is the music. It will be very much 8-bit like and using sounds sparingly. I’m not sure people will like it, I’m sure they will though. But what we have done so far sounds very different to what we have done so far. (Interview via SL)
