 ANDY BELL: Variance III - The 'Torsten In Queereteria Remixes

Format: CD
Genre: Electronic Pop
Label: Cherry Red
Release Date: 14.03.2020
Order Number: ZRSFE083

A strictly limited edition 1,000 copy pressing of an outré, ultra-synth, pop-dance remix celebration of tracks from Erasure singer Andy Bell’s cult-theatrical side project, Torsten, in which he performs as his acclaimed ‘semi-immortal, poly sexual sensualist’ alter-ego. “Variance III - The ‘Torsten In Queereteria’ Remixes” features two reworks by electronic pop legends Bronski Beat who have dance remixed the fans’ two most popular Andy Bell is Torsten songs, ‘I Don’t Like’ and ‘We Hadn’t Slept For Twenty Years’ in their signature retro electropop style! Euro-poptastic remixer Matt Pop has created an evocative dance floor smash from the emotional Andy Bell is Torsten torch song ‘Not Opting Out’; this definitive remix is Andy Bell’s personal favourite of all the reworks ever done from his critically acclaimed Torsten songbook. Previous Andy Bell collaborators, synth wizards Shelter, have also remixed a variant upbeat version of the Andy Bell is Torsten single ‘We Hadn’t Slept For Twenty Years’, a song celebrated by delighted audiences as the heart wrenching closing song of the recent ‘Queereteria TV’ stage show. A further highlight is the deftly atmospheric electronic re-working of ‘Lowland Lowriders’ by Jerome Froese (ex-Tangerine Dream). Variance III also includes two completely new songs ‘Lead Me’ and ‘Judgement’ that are exclusive to this album! The CD also includes four bonus tracks, a variant Andy Bell solo version of ‘If We Want To Drink A Little’ (previously a duet on the ‘Queereteria’ album with Hazel O’Connor), as well as the edit versions of songs, as issued to radio stations, of ‘Silence Is Golden’, ‘Not Opting Out’ and ‘We Hadn’t Slept For Twenty Years’, the last of which boasts alternative lyrics! This collectible limited edition CD is packaged in a miniature LP style gatefold sleeve with new photos and a message from Team Torsten about this ‘endgame’ release.
