Duo announce definitive 30th anniversary boxset

The last year has seen Erasure celebrate three decades in the business with a series of special releases and now they have announced a definitive boxset consisting of 13 discs.

The anthology release has been specially curated by Andy Bell and Vince Clarke and comes while they are in the midst of recording a brand new album set for release next year. From Moscow To Mars includes all 50 of the duo's singles, a CD which compiles both Vince and Andy's personal favourite tracks, multiple discs of remixes as well as B-sides, rarities and live tracks. There is even a radio documentary about the pair's history and The Wild! Concert will be made available on DVD for the first time. If that's not reason enough to get your hands on it, it all comes accompanied by sleeve notes lovingly written by our very own Luke Turner.

It's all available next month and you can check out a teaser trailer to whet your appetite for its release above. You can pre-order the boxset in the meantime and get an instant six-track download from here.
