Erasure’s poptastic 1994 hit Always has received a 21st century reboot ahead of an upcoming re-release scheduled in for 23 October.
The new version of the synth ballad will appear on the Andy and Vince’s upcoming greatest hits collection The Very Best of Erasure which is being released on 30 October to celebrate the duo’s thirty year-long career.
Always 2015 has been remixed by David Wrench who has previously worked with Hot Chip, Jamie XX and Caribou. A special 3CD hardback book edition of the album will also feature further remixes from William Orbit, Moby, BT and The Grid, and is available to preorder now from Erasure’s official website.
Always reached #4 upon its initial release twenty one years ago, and a previously unreleased remix featured on the band’s last career retrospective Total Pop! The First 40 Hits which reached #21 on the UK singles countdown in 2009.
As well as including classic hits from the vault, the new compilation will also feature the singles Be With You and Elevation from the duo’s 2011 and 2014 albums Tomorrow’s World and The Violet Flame.
