Former bandmates Vince Clarke and Martin Gore — who parted ways professionally nearly 30 years ago when Clarke quit Depeche Mode — are working together again on a ‘techno-ish’ track that could be destined for the forthcoming Erasure album.
Erasure’s Andy Bell talks to Slicing Up Eyeballs about ‘Non-Stop,’ his dancefloor-ready second solo album that, in some ways, is actually Bell’s third, after his record label forced him to scrap a Stephen Hague-produced effort that ‘sounded too much like Erasure.’
This week’s new CDs include the American release of The Cure’s ‘Disintegration: Deluxe Edition,’ plus new albums from Erasure’s Andy Bell, Soft Cell’s Marc Almond and Dead Can Dance’s Brendan Perry, and a new live album from Throwing Muses’ Kristin Hersh.
The 2008 reunion tour by Yazoo — or Yaz, as the Vince Clarke/Alison Moyet group was called here in the U.S. — will be documented with a two-disc live album called ‘Reconstructed Live’ that’s due out this fall, the band announced today on its official site.
This week’s new releases include the ‘U2 360° at the Rose Bowl’ DVD/Blu-ray, the new single from Erasure frontman Andy Bell’s forthcoming solo album, a new Television Personalities album (‘A Memory is Better than Nothing’) and a reissue of King’s ‘Steps in Time.’
Erasure singer Andy Bell will show off his “his more clubby, nocturnal, disco-glam side” on ‘Non-Stop,’ his forthcoming second solo album — which features a duet with Jane’s Addiction frontman Perry Farrell.
Holed up in a mobile recording trailer in EMI’s London parking lot, Andy Bell and Vince Clarke of Erasure this week began offering fans short glimpses into the recording of their 14th studio album, posting a pair of videos in which they discuss their writing sessions — and Clarke’s plans to only use analog synths on the record.
