Erasure have announced a new release.

'Day-Glo' (Based On A True Story)' is a collection of 10 new tracks created from elements of the synth-pop duo's previous album, 2020's 'The Neon'.

Due out on August 12 via Mute, the record began to take shape after Vince Clarke spent unscheduled studio time digging deeper into 'The Neon', revealing "a track within a track" by manipulating files. Bandmate Andy Bell then worked alongside longtime collaborator Gareth Jones in the studio to create entirely new material.

The final album bears little resemblance to the original source material, though there are echoes of 'The Neon' at times. As a preview, Erasure have dropped a 30-second excerpt dubbed Chapter 1.

'Day-Glo' (Based On A True Story)' tracklist:

1. Based on a True Story
2. Bop Beat
3. Pin-Prick
4. The Conman
5. Now
6. Inside Out
7. Harbour of My Heart
8. 3 Strikes and You're Out
9. The Shape of Things
10. The End
