With almost 30 years of songwriting under their belt Erasure continues to expand their music horizons. Their new single “Elevation” receives a remix treatment from revered electronic artist BT, and the track, which also includes interpretations from Cutmore and Club Clique will be released September 15. “Elevation” is also available on iTunes pre-order.
Erasure’s busy 2014 includes the September 23 release of their album The Violet Flame, which had Vince Clarke and Andy Bell finding their creative muse in Miami’s sun drenched surroundings. “All that we said was that we’d like to make an uptempo dance record,” said Bell. “And that’s how it came out.”
Along with the standard release, The Violet Flame will also come out as a 2CD edition which features Erasure’s live performance at Mute’s Short Circuit festival in 2011. Exclusive 3CD deluxe box sets and a VIP ticket bundle are also up for grabs, and more info can be found here.
The “Elevation” remixes are catchy and addicting (I’ve got “Your love gets higher/Your love gets higher” stuck in my head), and the remix tracks can be heard below:
