Mute have set an October 4th release date for Erasure's new album Tomorrow's World and announced "When I Start To (Break It All Down)" as the title of the forthcoming single.
The new album news is accompanied by the announcement of the US tour dates, the first in more than five years.
Following the US tour, Erasure heads to the UK for a 16 dates starting October 12th, including an October 25th show at London's Roundhouse.
Tomorrow's World is the band's first album in more than four years. Tomorrow's World is produced by one of the dance scene's most exciting new talents, Frankmusik (production credits include Lady Gaga, Pet Shop Boys, Ellie Goulding) and mixed by Rob Orton.
Tomorrow's World was written in New York, London, and at Vince Clarke's cabin studio. It was recorded in Maine, London and Los Angeles between January and June 2011, with Vince using his vintage collection of analog synths for the final touch. The end result is a collection of electronic songs that sound totally contemporary and classic at the same time. All songs are written by Bell and Clarke.
