ERASURE star Andy Bell is going solo after signing a new deal with Sanctuary Records.

Bell will release his first solo album, ELECTRIC BLUE, in October (05).

And to show his support, the HIV-positive singer's Erasure partner VINCE CLARKE has remixed Bell's first solo single CRAZY.

Bell's debut album will feature duets with fellow gay pop star Jake Shears of the Scissor Sisters and former PROPAGANDA frontwoman CLAUDIA BRUCKEN.
