ERASURE release their new single, “World Be Gone,” on July 28 and have unveiled Boxed In’s remix of the track. Boxed In is the Oli Bayston, a British songwriter and producer who has previously remixed Public Service Broadcasting, Ghostpoet and Blossoms. Listen to his “World Be Gone” remix now atPopMatters.

The duo have also just announced details of a very special ARTE TV Berlin Live show which will be streamed live on Monday, July 24. The free show will be taking place at a small club in Berlin. The band is currently giving away tickets via their 
Facebook and Twitter. Further details here.

The new 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. The album’s artwork directly references the track, showing a ship's masthead rising up after being submerged in stormy waters, looking optimistically forward to the future. Tunespeak is currently running a contest for fans to enter to win an actual painting of the World Be Gone cover. Further details

World Be Gone” is a new mix of the title track of the band’s latest album. World Be Gone, released last month, entered the UK Official Album Chart at #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” remixed by fan favorites GRN and Manhattan Clique as well as House of Labs’s take on “Just A Little Love.” In addition, a brand new bonus track will be included. Listen to “I Need You Now”

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.
