Reigning kings of synth pop, Andy Bell and Vince Clarke, better known as Erasure, enlist American producer, EDM trailblazer and music tech zealot, BT, to elevate the first single off their forthcoming new album, 'The Violet Flame' (out September 22).
The song, aptly titled, "Elevation," will be released as a full single on September 15 in a special nine-track CD or download, boasting a menagerie of extended mixes, instrumentals, remixes and more.
First on decks for this massive undertaking, BT pushes the knobs on Erasure pointedly, into a elastic stretch of beatless sound-play as Andy Bell’s voice floats over a makeshift foundation of soft croons, swelling every so often in rousing harmony; while spaced-out sounds and sirens carry listeners into the calm yet danceable ether.PRE-ORDER THE CD EDITION OF 'ELEVATION' HERE
