ERASURE – currently on tour with Robbie Williams – have announced details of “World Be Gone,” their new single out via digital EP on July 28, 2017.

The new “World Be Gone” single aches with gorgeous melancholy for “the loss of our souls” and finds Andy Bell and Vince Clarke, the BRIT and Ivor Novello winning songwriting duo, in a reflective mood, giving the world and recent political upheavals a thoughtful examination.

Listen to a new single mix of “World Be Gone” 
here.

World Be Gone is Erasure’s seventeenth studio album and was released last month, entering the UK Official Album Chart at Number 6 and is the band’s first Top 10 studio album in 20 years.

The digital EP will feature remixes of “World Be Gone” from producer Gareth Jones and Boxed In, plus “Oh What A World” remixes by fan favorites GRN and Manhattan Clique as well as House of Labs’s take on “Just A Little Love.”

Andy Bell recently created a very special playlist in honor of Pride 2017. He told
 OUT“The experience of coming out for any young gay person is probably one of the most exciting, exhilarating times of their entire life. For me, it was no different in the heady, fairly desolate, landscape of London in the mid '80’s. These songs are a reflection of those times: drag queens making do, tarting themselves up for the evening and us going out into the night, not quite old enough to understand the power of beauty and youth." Listen to the playlist here.

Erasure’s current stadium tour with Robbie Williams continues throughout the summer and a recently announced headline tour of the UK and Europe – many of the dates sold out on the day of release – starts in Dublin in January 2018. February will see Erasure travel throughout the UK, finishing up with a return to London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo, before heading to Germany, full details below.
