The three-disc updated edition of the duo's 1991 album, 'Chorus', is out this Friday

Vince Clarke has remixed Erasure pumper ballad 'Turns The Love To Anger'. You can listen to it above.

The rework comes as part of a new and expanded three-disc version of Erasure's 1991 album Chorus, which is set for release this Friday (February 14).

In one of the new sleevenote interviews accompanying the reissue, Vince Clarke reflects on the making of the album, saying: "I gave myself two ground rules for the album. Number one, we'd only use analogue synthesisers. Number two, every single line on each track would be monophonic. There would be no chords. I thought it would give the album a distinctive sound."

As well as the text, Chorus' reissue comes with two further discs of B-sides, remixes and rarities. You can preorder it here.
