020 release, the 18th studio album from synthpop duo Erasure (vocalist Andy Bell and keyboardist Vince Clarke). Written and produced by Erasure, the album's initial sessions saw the Vince and Andy reunited to work on the follow up to 2017's World Be Gone with a fresh optimism and energy, in part born from their own recent personal projects. Taking inspiration from pop music through the decades, from bands Andy loved as a child through to the present day, he explains, "It was about refreshing my love - hopefully our love - of great pop. I want kids now to hear these songs! I wanted to recharge that feeling that pop can come from anyone." The Neon offers us warmth and a brilliant brightness in our strange, silent times. It connects us to our pasts and our futures as it glistens with hope. It creates beautiful places where our imaginations can roam, bringing us together, twinkling and beaming. The Neon puts you and me in the real world again, now and forever, lit up and alive.
