New Album and Interesting Questions

I just listened to "Light at the End of the World" for the first time after downloading it from iTunes today. I like it and know that I'll like it even more after listening to it again. I really liked "Sunday Girl", "I Could Fall in Love With You" (which I already had the single of), "Sucker for Love", and "I Don't Know Why" the best at first listen, but I usually do go for the more uptempo songs. I'll keep listening.

Now for something pretty wierd....I've been a fan of Erasure's since "Wonderland" and have seen them in concert many times. I have known all along that Andy is gay and I assumed that he and Vince were a couple all of these years. I never read anything contradictory to that until tonight when I was looking at the EIS site for lyrics for the new album (which I didn't find). I read a bit of an article about Vince's son, which I found interesting considering I thought he and Andy were a couple. I was further surprised when I read on the Forum that Vince was married to Tracey. I think it is great that he has a family but really wonder if Andy and Vince were ever a couple? Was Vince ever gay or bisexual? And does Andy have a partner?

Imagine....20-plus years of assuming Andy and Vince were partners. What a surprise!


I've always heard that Vince was straight, with no contradiction that I can think of.
Vince and Andy never have been a couple.

Andy does have a partner, I can't remember how many years they've been together but they've been together for quite some time. Both, iirc, are HIV+. His partner is currently shopping a book around to publishers about his life and partnership with Andy. I do not believe it has been picked up as yet.
Never been a couple. Andy has a long-term partner, Paul Hickey. Vince has been married to Tracey for quite a while. Tracey's twin sister Tonya used to be their tour (I think) manager. Both Tracey and Tonya are awesome, as are Andy and Vince, of course.


Andy's new BF?

I recently have heard that after 20 years Andy has a new boyfriend. What happened to Paul? Does anyone know more?
