British giants, Erasure, have released a remixed version of their smash hit ‘A Little Respect.’ The updated song, which has become sort of a gay rights anthem over the years, will also feature a new video shot in New York. All the proceeds will go directly to The Hetrick-Martin Institute, the home of the Harvey Milk High School, in New York, and the True Colors Fund. In the wake of the recent gay bullying and suicides, Erasure felt it necessary to raise awareness, tolerance, and money for those organizations promoting the cause.
The band has also announced their Total Pop! tour for Summer 2011, taking place in spectacular woodland areas of the UK. Tickets go on sale December 10th at 9 AM. Buy your tickets here.
