Erasure this week released the first single off its upcoming Christmas album Snow Globe, a synthpop take on the medieval Latin carol “Gaudete,” which was a folk hit in 1973 for Steeleye Span. The duo also debuted a new stop-motion animation video created by Martin Meunier (“James & The Giant Peach” and “Coraline”) and Tonya Hurley, author of the best-selling “ghostgirl” and “The Blessed.”
Check out the video below; the album arrives Nov. 11 (see full tracklisting).
