“It’s all about hope, forgiveness, being given a new chance and the world being your oyster” - Andy Bell

ERASURE--Vince Clarke and Andy Bell--has unveiled a soaring remix of their new single “Elevation” by legendary electronic artist BT. Sure to be a dance-floor filler, this remix will be available for sale along with re-workings from Cutmore, Club Clique and more, beginning September 15. “Elevation” is available now via iTunes pre-order, preceding The Violet Flame album release on September 23, 2014.

Listen to the BT’s transcendent reworking of this already euphoric rush of a track here.

From the moment that The Violet Flame opens, the listener is drawn into ERASURE’s empowering sense of optimism. Once again, as they approach 30 years of songwriting, having sold 25 million albums and achieved more than 40 hit singles leading into their 16th studio album, the globally-adored duo of Andy Bell and Vince Clarke have created another stunning success of emotionally-charged electro-pop with euphoric, synth-fuelled melodies that strike instantly to the heart.

The Violet Flame, recorded in New York and London and produced by Richard X, sees ERASURE express an infectious zest for the future. The album’s creation--so soon after the release of 2013’s Snow Globe--followed a different path to previous ERASURE releases. As ever, the songwriting was entirely collaborative but this time, the warmth of Miami gave a perfect backdrop for the album writing and the starting point, unusually, was Vince’s pre-recorded dance grooves. This proved to be a more instant method of songwriting that saw the songs flow at great speed.

“I found them very inspiring and the tunes just came out”, reflects Andy. “This time it was much more off the top of the head. All that we said was that we’d like to make an uptempo dance record. And that’s how it came out.”

The Violet Flame is available now to pre-order. As well as the standard version, The Violet Flame will be available as limited 2CD edition, which features Erasure’s legendary live performance at Mute’s Short Circuit festival in 2011. In addition, there will be exclusive versions which include the 3CD deluxe box set as well as a VIP ticket bundle, featuring the album, premium ticket and opportunities to meet the band and much, much more, all available here

The Violet Flame Tour begins in Miami on September 12, with special shows through the US including Las Vegas in Halloween and New York City on New Year’s Eve (full details below). Look for BT’s new project with Christian Burns, All Hail the Silence, to appear on select dates. Tickets are on sale now, full details from: http://www.erasureinfo.com/concerts/
