?It?s all about hope, forgiveness, being given a new chance and the world being your oyster? – Andy Bell

Watch the euphoric video for Erasure?s brand new single, ?Elevation?, out this week, September 16th,here: This is the first single from Erasure?s forthcoming album, The Violet Flame, released September 23rd. Produced by Richard X, you can listen to a pre-release stream now from USA TODAY here.

The single, featuring BT?s transcendent reworking of this uplifting rush of a track will be available for sale along with re-workings from Cutmore, Club Clique and more. Listen and share BT?s remix here.

Erasure?s worldwide tour is already underway, and the band have partnered up with Live Nation and Yahoo to live-stream their September 27th, 2014 concert, live from House of Blues Boston.? This is one of 365 concerts to stream over a 12-month period on the Live Nation Channel on Yahoo Screen.? You can watch the Erasure show live on September 27th, here.

From the moment that The Violet Flame opens, the listener is drawn into Erasure?s empowering sense of optimism. Once again – as they approach 30 years of songwriting, having sold 25 million albums and achieved more than 40 hit singles – with their 16th studio album, the globally-adored duo of Andy Bell and Vince Clarke have created another stunning success of emotionally-charged electro-pop with?euphoric,?synth-fuelled melodies?that strike instantly to the heart.

The Violet Flame, recorded in New York and London and produced by Richard X, sees Erasure express an infectious zest for the future. The album?s creation ? so soon after the release of 2013?s Snow Globe – followed a different path to previous Erasure releases. As ever, the songwriting was entirely collaborative but this time, the warmth of Miami gave a perfect backdrop for the album writing and the starting point, unusually, was Vince?s pre-recorded dance grooves. This proved to be a more instant method of songwriting that saw the songs flow at great speed.

?I found them very inspiring and the tunes just came out?, reflects Andy. ?This time it was much more off the top of the head. All that we said was that we?d like to make an uptempo dance record. And that?s how it came out.?

The Violet Flame is available now to pre-order. As well as the standard version, The Violet Flame will be available as limited 2CD edition, which features Erasure?s legendary live performance at Mute?s Short Circuit festival in 2011. In addition, there will be exclusive versions which include the 3CD deluxe boxset as well as a VIP ticket bundle, featuring the album, premium ticket and opportunities to meet the band and much, much more, all available here.
