Andy Bell & Vince Clarke - Erasure Snow Globe

The New Erasure Album

The new Snow Globe album is available now
Erasure Snow Globe

The new Erasure album, Snow Globe, is a collection of original compositions and seasonal classics. The forthcoming 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.

I haven't actually heard him sing better, says Vince of Andy stepping back into the booth. I found my inner choirboy again, says Andy. I thought I'd lost him but he was there all along.

Unlike the bells and whistles, glitter and tinsel sets that crowd the market come Christmas-time, Snow Globe is possessed of something more in the wistfully, strangely subdued celebratory mould of recent seasonal albums by Tracey Thorn and Kate Bush. Not that 'Snow Globe' sounds like either of those albums of course, 'Snow Globe' is 110% pure Erasure!

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.
