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)
As being a hardcore MiniBrute myself, it is really nice to see one of the legends using it
Check out our exclusive interview with synth legend Vince Clarke at his studio in New-York, talking about MiniBrute, his relation to synths and his up-coming projects.
Erasure have spent this week writing material for their upcoming new album. Andy and Vince have been locked away in Vince’s studio in Brooklyn where the duo made this video…
This video, of Erasure performing ‘Fill Us With Fire’, was filmed during the band’s 2011 tour in support of their Frankmusik produced ‘Tomorrow’s World’ album, which was released in October 2011.
‘Fill Us With Fire’ is the third single to be released from the album and will be available from March 12th 2012 as a eight-track CD and download.
Just in time for Christmas Mute Records offer an additional “Mute Sampler”. Among the fifteen tracks Mute mixes newer addition to the record company’s stables, such as SCUM and Apparat, with the band’s more classic bands like Erasure, Depeche Mode, Cabaret Voltaire and Nick Cave side project Grinderman.
The latter made the weekend one last gig at the Meredith Music Festival in Victoria and then front man ended by announcing the fans, “That’s all from Grinderman. It’s over. See you soon in ten years or so when we are even older and uglier. ”
