Erasure will be adding a new chapter to the ‘World Be Gone’ story on March 9th with the release of a companion album, ‘World Beyond’, and today we have the great pleasure of bringing you a preview of the track ‘Still It’s Not Over’ from the album.
‘World Beyond’ is a collaboration with a Belgian group of post-classical musicians working under the name Echo Collective, and sees the songs from ‘World Be Gone’ undergo an classical re-interpretation. The album features new vocal performances from Andy Bell alongside gorgeous versions of the ‘World Be Gone’ songs performed on violin, harp, cello, double-bass, piano, glockenspiel and vibraphone.
The album is available right now from LEXER MUSIC and PLEDGEMUSIC, both individually (on CD, Limited Edition CD Book Pack, Vinyl, Cassette and Download), and in a range of bundles. There are also 1600 ‘World Beyond’ postcards (800 at PledgeMusic and 800 at Lexer Music), signed by Andy Bell and Vince Clarke, which will be added to random ‘World Beyond’ orders.
‘World Beyond’ will also be available as a standard CD and download from all good online and offline retailers.
