Before we ever seize the day, the calming of the seasons end, Life becomes a hidden play imparted with a furtive glance. Was it everything you’d dreamed it’d be? Or illusions shattered into glass? World be gone, or are you filled with loving the way that you promised us long ago? And will it tie us to the masts of our souls as in ancient lore? And I saw you standing there holding your head in your hands. Though it hurts to say goodbye, silver linings in the leaden sky, One day we’ll return again, and surely we will make amends, Consequences never seen broken shadows on an empty.

World Beyond offers a fresh take on their most recent record, last year's World Be Gone. They collaborated with seven members of Echo Collective, a Brussels-based classical ensemble, to produce new versions of all the songs found on that album. The idea came from Erasure keyboardist Vince Clarke, who originally wanted an orchestral arrangement of one of its songs, but then it turned into an album-length project, and a collaborative effort with Echo Collective

The collaboration sees the entirety of Erasure's latest album, World Be Gone, given a post-classical rework. World Beyond was recorded over ten days by Andy Bell and seven performers from the Echo Collective: Margaret Hermant (violin, harp), Neil Leiter (viola), Thomas Engelen (cello), Jaroslaw Mroz (double bass), Gary De Cart (piano) and Antoine Dandoy (vibraphone, glockenspiel). The tracks featured on World Beyond show award-winning songwriters Vince Clarke and Andy Bell in a more reflective mood, giving the world and recent political upheavals a thoughtful examination. This new collaboration gives a new dimension to the tracks - including fan-favourites 'Still It's Not Over', which tackles the LGBT rights movement post-Stonewall, and 'Lousy Some Of Nothing', a ballad for our post-truth age - but the band's optimism about the future remains clear and bright.

The band last did something like this in 1987 on a handful of tracks from The Two Ring Circus, a companion LP to their second album, The Circus. A re-recording more than a "reimagining," it captures Andy Bell back in the studio for fresh vocal takes, this time with the Belgian chamber ensemble Echo Collective.
