What A Beautiful Situation

After failing to get his initial solo album, which would eventually turn into "Other People's Songs," off the ground, Andy Bell's solo career just got some good news:

Erasure frontman Andy Bell has signed a worldwide solo recording deal with Sanctuary Records, and announced details of his debut album, which will be released on 3rd October 2005, and entitled 'Electric Blue'.

The first single release will be 'Crazy', released on September 26th. The single will come on three formats, with club remixes from Erasure partner Vince Clarke, plus Cicada, MHC and King Roc...

The album features 14 brand new tracks, including two duets, with Claudia Brucken (of Propaganda and Act) and Jake Shears (of Scissor Sisters), and encompasses a variety of musical genres.

'Electric Blue' was co-written and recorded throughout 2004 and 2005 with Manhattan Clique (Philip Larsen & Chris Smith)...

Live dates are being planned for late 2005/early 2006, and the trio are also planning a series of PA's and DJ gigs around album release.

: Bell has also worked with Manhattan Clique to remix the upcoming Goldfrapp single "Ohh La La" where he added aditional vocals. The man's keeping busy for someone who had hip replacement surgery in the past few years.
