Synthpop greats Erasure today released the video for “A Little Respect (HMI Redux),” the new version of the classic song they recorded to raise awareness about gay bullying and teen suicides that benefits the Hetrick-Martin Institute, an LGBTQ youth service organization. The clip, directed by Jason Stein and featuring the Hetrick-Martin youth chorus, was filmed in New York City, and could double, in parts, as Andy Bell’s audition tape for the Blue Man Group. Missing in action, however, is the other half of Erasure, Vince Clarke. Check it out above.
