In October Erasure will release a brand new version of “Sometimes” via Mute Records. The new version comes in a new mix by David Wrench and will be available as a CD single and download featuring new remixes plus vault material.

The single acts as a teaser for the release of a new 3CD compilation, “Always – The Very Best of Erasure”, yet another best of, which will be available in a special hardback book format featuring a selection of the band’s singles from 1985 to today alongside 2 further discs of remixes (new, old and rare remixes).

2016 will also see an anthology boxset as well as a series of vinyl album reissues on 180g heavyweight vinyl.

The English synth pop duo Erasure, consisting of singer and songwriter Andy Bell and songwriter and keyboardist Vince Clarke, formed in London, and entered the music scene in 1985 with their debut single “Who Needs Love Like That”. Their debut album, “Wonderland”, was mostly recorded in 1985 and released in June 1986.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
