Erasure songwriter confirms that the pair are collaborating on a dance record

In an interview with The Quietus today, Erasure’s Vince Clarke confirmed that he was currently working on a new dance record with Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore.

Clarke left Depeche Mode in 1981, but revealed on Twitter earlier this year that he and Gore would be collaborating on a new project together.

And today, he told us: “I am collaborating with Martin Gore on a kind of dancey record. I emailed him and asked if he wanted to make a dance record. It’s going to be a long, long process. I’m emailing him my ideas and he’s emailing me ideas back and so we’re just compiling stuff that way, but it’s moving along so I’m quite excited about that.”

When asked whether he’d spoken to Gore before discussing working together again, he replied: “No, we’d spoken about twice. I don’t know [why I asked]; I think I’d had a few beers and I just did it. I thought, ‘He can only say no’, but he came back with a positive response and I thought ‘Excellent’.”

As of yet, however, there’s no firm date for when the project will be finish, with Clarke saying he “had no idea” when fans would be able to hear the material.
