It's preceded by lead track 'Hey Now (Think I Got A Feeling)'

Erasure have announced details of their 18th studio album, The Neon. Above, you can hear lead track 'Hey Now (Think I Got A Feeling)'.

The album is said to have been born from a series of studio sessions that the duo went into with fresh optimism and energy, particularly in the wake of personal projects. "Our music is always a reflection of how we're feeling," the duo's Vince Clark says. "He [Andy Bell] was in a good place spiritually, and so was I – really good places in our minds. You can hear that."

Andy Bell adds: "It was about refreshing my love – hopefully our love – of great pop. I want kids now to hear these songs! I wanted to recharge that feeling that pop can come from anyone."

Mute will release The Neon on August 21, 2020.
