Vince Clarke and Martin L. Gore collaborate for the first time in 30 years!

VCMG is a new project that marks the first time Vince Clarke (Erasure / Yazoo / Depeche Mode) and Martin L. Gore (Depeche Mode) have worked together since 1981.

“I’ve been getting into and listening to a lot of minimal dance music and I got really intrigued by all the sounds,” said Clarke in a press release . “I realised I needed a collaborator… so it occurred to me to talk to Martin.”

An as-yet untitled album will be out on Mute in Spring 2012, but in the meantime they have started releasing a series of EPs. The first, “Spock” is current available from Beatport  and will be getting a wider release on December 12. A 12 inch vinyl version will follow on  December 19.
