•    In an amazing and surprising career move and, in his own words, “the biggest challenge of my career so far”, Erasure’s Andy Bell is ‘Torsten The Bareback Saint’. Andy sings in character as an age-defying polysexual in an all new solo album that is the soundtrack to the theatre show of the same name. A theatre show that is headlining the Assembly – Venue One, George Square at the 2014 Edinburgh International Fringe Festival and which, even before opening, has been already been named in The Times newspaper as being in their Times 2 ‘Top Ten Pick Of The Fringe’.

•    “Torsten The Bareback Saint” is a highly theatrical and moving song-cycle of lyrical postcards from the hotspots of an outsider’s memory; memories from a life lived as a semi-immortal, learned sensualist. Andy Bell as ‘Torsten’ sings deeply affecting expositional songs that incrementally illuminate his extraordinarily mysterious life as a man disconcerted by his own bizarre experience of the nature of passing time.

•    Torsten is an ‘everyman’ for our times; a prophet of longing, loss and love ever after.

•    The CD is housed in a deluxe 36 page hardback book containing the full libretto and production photographs.

•    The show and album are subject to a major national PR campaign over press, radio, TV and online.

There is also a special 7” single available – www.cherryred.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=4822 and a Performance Programme – www.cherryred.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=4823

NB: This title is released July 28 and will not be dispatched before this date.
