Erasure - Snow GlobeAlbum & singles available now
Erasure's album Snow Globe is a collection of original compositions and seasonal classics.
"We managed to strip everything back to bare essentials," Vince says approvingly of the minimal approach Erasure took for this recording. "White Christmas almost has a drone all the way through it. I love that."
The first single, Gaudete, is Erasure's take on the traditional Latin carol, which will be recognisable by many after Steeleye Span's version in the early 70s.
The second single Make It Wonderful is a new composition. The exposition involved in a song as open and hopeful as Make It Wonderful came easily to Andy Bell, who explains, "…what I love is that Vince managed to add something quite childlike and almost scary to it."
