Erasure announce Tomorrow's World album
Don't worry - it's not related to 'that' TV show in any way. But yes, the new Erasure album is called Tomorrow's World and the band announced a selection of rather exciting details regarding the new record on their website today along with a heap of North American tour dates.
The duo's first studio release since 2007's Light At The End Of The World, Tomorrow's World is due out in the Autumn and will be produced by Frankmusik. This instantly makes it amazing. Having remixed the likes of the Pet Shop Boys, Lady Gaga and Ellie Goulding, it's far to say Frankmusik has the seal of approval when it comes to working with the very best in electronic music.
The album was recorded in New York and London with keyboard whiz Vince Clarke adding an authentic touch to the record with his selection of analog synths. This is something I've always been a big fan of - Erasure's sound has always remained unmistakeably 'them' despite changing musical trends around them. There's a dinstinct bounce to Erasure tracks, a tactile responsiveness that comes from that analog quality.
