Frankmusik Kicks Off North American Tour With Erasure
Well, here it is folks! The official CD single of that poptastic duet between Frankmusik and Colette Carr that all you pop heads have been salivating over since the two first performed it at Cherrytree London.
This limited-edition physical copy of the "No I.D." single features the radio cut of the song, plus Morel's buzzing revamp. You can get this copy of the single if you attend Frankmusik's show with Erasure this month.
Frankmusik kicked of his month-long North American tour with the synth-pop legends last week in Florida. On Saturday, the tour stopped by Atlanta where I had a chance to see Frank's opening show and an amazing perfomance by the unstoppable Erasure. It's a must-see.
Instead of introducing a few new tracks from his forthcoming new album "Do It In The AM," the singer and producer opted to mix up his own tunes with '80s classics and other audience favorites. "Most of you don't know my songs, so let me make it a little more familiar for you," he explained before starting off his gig.
The result is a 30-minute non-stop tour de force of pop that included a few new tracks, an older one and a whole lot of tunes by other artists. Contrary to Frank's belief, a lot of people had come out to see his very first Atlanta show and were eager to hear his music.
Fortunately for them, he did perform a few of his very good new tunes, including "Wrecking Ball" (mashed up with The Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams) "Do It In The AM," "No I.D." (together with Casey Carlson) and the absolutely phenomenal "Struck By Lightning," a classic Frank tune that neatly bridges his new and former album.
The singer also performed "Better Of As Two" from his debut record that he mashed up with Eric Prydz "Call On Me."
It's a fun Frank set that really is a big tease for a full Frankmusik show with a lot more of his new music. Stay tuned for a candid video interview with Frank in which he talks more about his production work on Erasure's new album and his own new LP "Do It In The AM" that will be available in a store near you on September 27.
