"The new Erasure album will be called Snow Globe, and it's a collection of thirteen original compositions and seasonal classics. The album will be released on 11th November 2013 in the UK, and within a day or two of that date everywhere else. Snow Globe isn't a Christmas album in the traditional sense, and the press release for the album sums it up better than I can by describing the album as being "possessed of something more in the wistfully, strangely subdued celebratory mould of recent seasonal albums by Tracey Thorn and Kate Bush." Not that Snow Globe sounds like either of those records of course, Snow Globe is 110% pure Erasure and I promise that you're going to love it."
The first single from the album is a cover of the Medieval carol, "Gaudete," which will be released prior to Snow Globe (likely sometime in October). Erasure won't tour to promote the album this year, but they are currently considering tour opportunities in 2014.
Links to purchase Snow Globe will be provided once they are available. In the meantime, visit the official Erasure site to catch up with the band.
