erasure theneonERASURE (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) have announced details of their eighteenth studio album, ‘The Neon’, and share the album’s luminous opener, ‘Hey Now (Think I Got A Feeling)’. The 10-track album is out on Mute on 21 August 2020, and available on limited edition neon orange vinyl, limited edition green cassette and as a pre-order exclusive CD in a fold out orange foil blocked sleeve with fold out lyric and photography booklet, as well as to download and stream. Watch the lyric video here:



‘The Neon’ is a place that lives in the imagination, that we - you and me - put in the real world. It could be a night club, a shop, a city, a cafe, a country, a bedroom, a restaurant, any place at all. It’s a place of possibility in warm, glowing light and this is music that takes you there.

Written and produced by ERASURE, the album’s initial sessions saw the Vince and Andy reunited to work on the follow up to 2017’s ‘World Be Gone’ with a fresh optimism and energy, in part born from their own recent personal projects. Vince goes on to explain, “Our music is always a reflection of how we’re feeling. He was in a good place spiritually, and so was I - really good places in our minds. You can hear that.”

Taking inspiration from Pop music through the decades, from bands Andy loved as a child through to the present day, he explains, “It was about refreshing my love - hopefully our love - of great pop. I want kids now to hear these songs! I wanted to recharge that feeling that pop can come from anyone.”

The album’s vocals were recorded in Atlanta, Georgia, with Vince joining Andy at the studio sessions, and the mixing was done by the band in London earlier this year. Photographs were shot at that time in the unique environs of Gods Own Junkyard, a gallery housing a huge collection of vintage neon. Andy enthuses, “I felt like it was being inside a virtual reality game. I loved that it felt like being in a different world. That’s what I want our new album to convey.”

‘The Neon’ offers us warmth and a brilliant brightness in our strange, silent times. It connects us to our pasts and our futures as it glistens with hope. It creates beautiful places where our imaginations can roam, bringing us together, twinkling and beaming. ‘The Neon’ puts you and me in the real world again, now and forever, lit up and alive.

Pre-order: mute.ffm.to/TheNeon. Pre-orders via the band’s shop will give priority access to future tour dates.
