After an extremely busy 2011, so far Erasure news in 2012 has felt somewhat sparse in comparison. So it comes as a relief to learn that work on the next Erasure album could begin in "weeks". That's according to Vince on Twitter:
@stephy1970 Hopefully start writing in the next few weeks...(cheer up, it's nearly ThursdayV)

Adding further weight to the belief the band will soon be writing new material is another Vince tweet (although perhaps this one should be taken with a pinch of salt):
@Dnannery The one we're just about to write..heh! heh!V

While these tweets look positive, Vince did state the band would be touring early in 2012, especially in Asia, and unfortunately that never happened. Still, it's good to read there is still the desire to get work on a new album under-way.
