Erasure's bold new acoustic album, Union Street, will be in stores on April 18th, with a US tour slated for kickoff on May 6th at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium (formerly the Grand Ole Opry). On their brand new album Union Street, Erasure have delivered their biggest surprise yet. In a boldly experimental step for an electronic band, they have unplugged themselves, bringing new soulful new depths and acoustic, maybe even a touch of country-western, textures to 11 songs spanning their entire career.
The album is dominated by revamped album tracks and born-again B-sides that the band felt best suited an extreme makeover. All sound refreshingly different to their original blueprints. "It was great going back through those songs, some of which I hadn't listened to properly since we made them," Vince Clarke recalls. "Suddenly you heard some of the naivety that was in there in the first place."
