Erasure’s ‘The Violet Flame’: Stream The Full Album
Erasure is back at it once again.
Following the release of last year’s holiday-themed Snow Globe, the prolific electronic duo has returned this year with their sixteenth (!) studio album The Violet Flame due out on September 22, helmed by British hit-maker, Richard X.
After we premiered the tracklisting and vibrant cover art for the upcoming LP right here on Idolator, the troupe debuted the album’s surging lead single “Elevation,” an uplifting slice of majestic synth-pop.
And, as with “Elevation,” you can expectedly equally bright and flashy things across the entirety of the record: “This time, because we wrote on the synths, Vince came up with some dance riffs. I just sang along with those, so it was much more immediate. We also did the writing in Miami rather than New York, so it was much warmer,” Andy Bell tells USA Today where the album can be exclusively streamed in full.
Listen to the stream at USA Today, and check out the full tracklisting after the jump.
