2006 Album Available on Vinyl for the First Time!
The celebration of Erasure's (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) 30th anniversary continues in the fall of 2016 with the next installment of 180-gram vinyl catalog reissues which includes Other People's Songs (2003), Nightbird (2005), Union Street (2006), and Light at the End of the World (2007).
Union Street is the twelfth studio album by Erasure. Originally released in 2006 on Mute, the album comprises re-imaginings of previous Erasure songs in a country or acoustic style. For those who regard Erasure as a purely electronic concern, Union Street explodes the myth and shows just how talented Clarke and Bell are as songwriters. Tracks like "Boy" and "Piano Song" shimmer with pedal steel and acoustic guitar, and Bell's soulful voice only improves with age. Union Street was the second Erasure studio album not to be released on vinyl, so this special reissue is the very first time the record has been made available as an LP.
Erasure is one of the UK's most enduring award-winning songwriting duos. The BRIT and Ivor Novello winning pair have released a staggering number of albums, including 5 UK No. 1's and 17 top 10 singles (35 singles charted in the UK Top 40). Caitlin Moran of The Times exclaimed, "Let's face it – there is nothing Kraftwerk did that Erasure didn't do better, for longer, and while wearing a blue sequinned cowboy hat and chaps."
