Vince Clarke puts a spin on Erasure's 'Stop!' for new compilation marking the band's 30th anniversary

Erasure are set to release a new compilation later this month celebrating their 30th anniversary with classic tracks, remixes and rarities. Above, taken from Always - The Very Best Of Erasure, you can hear a remix of ‘Stop!’ by Vince Clarke himself.

2015 sees the band marking their 30th anniversary and Mute are celebrating that with a series of special releases this month kicking off with ’Sometimes (2015)’ on October 2013, which sees the duo updating their classic single, followed by Always - The Very Best Of Erasure which will be released a week later on October 30. These special releases will continue into 2016 and until the anniversary of their debut album, Wonderland.

The compilation will be released on CD, download and in a deluxe CD boxset, containing a number of their classic singles. There will be two further discs of remixes, packaged in a hardback book with a booklet and a selection of archive photographs. These remixes include classics from Moby and William Orbit, as well as newer edits by Grumbling Fur, Vince Clarke and more. Keep your eyes peeled on these pages also very soon for a Strange World Of… feature on Erasure.
