ErasureLive_Credit_Andy Sturmey_024ERASURE (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) will release World Be Live – a 24-track live album recorded in London in February during the band’s World Be Gone tour on 6 July 2018. World be Live will be available in 2CD, 3-vinyl and download formats.

World Be Live completes a trilogy of albums that began in 2017 with the release of Erasure’s seventeenth studio album World Be Gone, and continued with World Beyond, their post-classical reworking of the songs from World Be Gone recorded in collaboration with Echo Collective and released in March this year.

World Be Live was recorded across two shows at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith at the close of Erasure’s sold out UK World Be Gone tour which saw the award-winning songwriters play hits from across their career in a show that included live versions of the timeless pop hits Sometimes, Oh L’Amour, Ship of Fools, Chains of Love, Blue Savannah and Stop!, alongside a cover of Blondie’s Atomic and tracks from Erasure’s recent World Be Gone project, including Love You To The Sky, which you can listen to below:

Erasure, who recently accepted the Icon Award at Attitude’s 2017 award ceremony, have released a staggering number of albums, including 5 UK Number 1s, and 35 UK Top 40 singles. World Be Gone went to Number 6 in the UK Official Albums Chart, giving the enduring BRIT and Ivor Novello winning pop duo their highest album chart position since 1994’s I Say I Say I Say.

Raised by music obsessive parents on a diet of Ska, Bowie, Queen… and the Bay City Rollers. Discovered dance music and heavy metal at the same time making for a strange brew of taste. I do this for the love of an art form which welcomes all types and speaks to us all. Find me on twitter @simontucker1979.
