ERASURE Releases 'Snow Globe' Album Deluxe Nutcracker Edition Today

ERASURE (Andy Bell and Vince Clarke) have announced the deluxe digital edition of their 2013 album, Snow Globe, a collection of original compositions and seasonal classics. Out today, December 2nd, the Snow Globe Nutcracker Edition features the original album alongside 16 bonus tracks and videos for both singles: "Make It Wonderful" and ERASURE's take on the traditional Latin carol, "Gaudete." The package features three previously unreleased tracks, including Knocking Ghost's remix of "Loving Man. Listen here.

In addition, an acoustic version of the single "Make It Wonderful" is available to stream and share here.

Produced by ERASURE, Gareth Jones and Richard X, Snow Globe is unlike the bells and whistles, glitter and tinsel sets that crowd the market come Christmas-time; it's possessed of something more in the wistfully, strangely subdued celebratory mold of recent seasonal albums by Tracey Thorn and Kate Bush.

Watch the videos for "Gaudete" here, and "Make It Wonderful" here.

ERASURE, currently on tour through the U.K. and Europe, recently released their sixteenth studio album, The Violet* Flame. The Violet* Flame Tour follows their acclaimed U.S. tour, and the U.K. leg includes two London shows at the Forum on December 14th and 15th. Parralox will support on November 15th, while support on first night comes from Iris Gold. The year will then end with two special shows at New York's Terminal 5 on December 30th and 31st (full details below). Tickets are on sale now:

Fans currently have a chance to create their own remix of the track "Sacred," courtesy of Blend. The winner of the competition will have their remix included in the official release of "Sacred," in addition to snagging a copy of limited edition vinyl of The Violet* Flame.
