Erasure share new song “Love You to the Sky” — watch

From the UK duo's forthcoming 17th studio album, World Be Gone

Erasure are set to return with their 17th studio album, World Be Gone, on May 19th via Mute. Today, they’ve shared the first single from the The Violet Flame follow-up, “Love You to the Sky”.

The track comes in on marching percussion before softening out over some bouncing electronics. It might at first sound like a dramatic bit of new wave, but as the soaring synthesizers on the chorus signal, it’s really a sugary love-sick ode. “I love you to the sky, sky, sky, sky,” Andy Bell sings. “I’ll not tell you lies, lies, lies, lies/ You can be my summer romance/ Say it’s not an omen/ Tell me that you want me.” Take a listen via the lyric video below.

Erasure will support World Be Gone on a European tour this summer alongside Robbie Williams.
