By the time you read this, holiday music will have begun its slow ascent to infiltrating every known retail and restaurant radio system by December 25. And while nothing may ever be as classic or ubiquitous as Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas," we search high and low every holiday season for those albums that have that possibility.
Andy Bell and Vince Clark, better known as Erasure, recently spoke with David Atlanta about putting their spin on some holiday classics. The end result? Snow Globe, the stunning holiday album from the beloved English duo, Erasure.
Produced by Erasure, Gareth Jones and Richard X, Snow Globe is a collection of original compositions and seasonal classics. The first single, "Gaudete," is Erasure's take on the traditional Latin carol, which will be recognizable by many after Steeleye Span's version in the early 70s.
